New Delhi, June 6 Microsoft India said Friday that its Managing Director, Ms Neelam Dhawan, would be leaving the company after a three-and-a-half-year stint, to take over as Managing Director of Hewlett-Packard India.
In a statement, Mr Ravi Venkatesan, Chairman of Microsoft India, said, “I am sorry to announce that Ms Neelam Dhawan will be leaving Microsoft to join HP India as its Managing Director. While I hope that this will only strengthen our relationship with one of our most important partners, we are losing a strong leader who has, over the past three years, helped position Microsoft strongly in the Indian market.”
Ms Dhawan joined Microsoft India in March 2005, and was responsible for the business strategy of the company. Commenting on the move, she said, “Being a part of the leadership team at Microsoft India has been one of the most rewarding roles of my professional life. My new role at HP gives me the opportunity to further strengthen the partnership between the two companies.”
