    Prior to assuming leadership of Microsoft CEE, Philippe served as Chief Operating Officer of Microsoft China for three years, where he led the sales, marketing and services organization to achieve significant business growth while building organizational capabilities during a critical period of transformation to cloud services and solutions. Philippe joined Microsoft in July 2010 as Enterprise and Partner Group Director and served as General Manager for Belgium and Luxembourg and led Microsoft Portugal on an interim basis during the second half of 2012.
