Microsoft Philippines Appoints New Managing Director

Microsoft regional officers made a surprising move by appointing Mr. Rafael “Pepeng” Rollan as the new Managing Director of Microsoft Philippines replacing Mr. Antonio “TJ” Javier. No details were given with regards to the reason behind the sudden change of the guards. Mr. Javier will still head Microsoft Philippines until September 30, 2007.

In a telephone conversation prior to the announcement, Mr. Javier said he has been serving as Microsoft Philippines managing director for five years now when normally the tenure is usually three years. Mr. Javier also said that Microsoft Philippines ended its fiscal year with a 56% growth, one of the best if not the best performance of a Microsoft subsidiary in Asia.

Prior to his appointment, Mr. Rollan serves as Microsoft’s Enterprise Partner Group Director. Rollan will serve as Managing Director and Enterprise Partner Group Director concurrently starting October 1, 2007.
