Corinne Sharp leaves Microsoft Canada without any channel leadership

Microsoft Canada channel chief leaves company

Two sources close to Microsoft Canada have told CDN that long time channel chief Corinne Sharp has left the subsidiary.

Sharp’s job at Microsoft Canada is to help thousands of solution providers and ISVs solve business problems with Microsoft software.

This development is just weeks since Eric Gales was replaced at Microsoft Canada president by Max Long.

Sources have also told CDN that this move is tied to overall poor sales performance, which had a role in the Gales departure.

CDNhas contacted Microsoft Canada for a comment and they have yet to respond.

A separate source told CDN that Sharp’s team at Microsoft Canada will now be reporting to Neil Tanner, the subsidiary’s vice-president of small business, midmarket solutions and partners.

Sharp got her start in high tech at Hamilton Computer Sales and Rental in Calgary. She was at the time the only female in the department. While at Microsoft, Sharp has been able to further diversity efforts at the company with initiatives such as Women in Leadership, Women in IT and Digigirls.
