Joe Macri retires

Joe Macri is retiring as Microsoft’s UK partner boss in June this year, bringing a 24-year stint with the vendor to an end.

Macri was appointed VP of Vole’s commercial partner division in the UK in July 2017 after a long history in other Microsoft roles.

On LinkedIn, Macri said he would “retire from Microsoft on 30 June”.

“After 24 years, including 13 years in international roles, the time has come to move on to the next stage of my life and career – in Ireland, closer to my family. Although I am retiring from full-time employment, I will be pursuing a non-executive career with a variety of technology and not-for-profit organisations, but more on that closer to the summer.”

Macri joined Vole in 1996 as a sales and marketing manager and rose to the role of Ireland general manager in 2001. He then had two EMEA roles before taking the UK channel job.
