Carol Leishman, Microsoft New Zealand's communications manager for the past eight years, is to move to the company's Seattle headquarters to be part of a new international communications team.
Leishman says the role involves supporting executives in their activities outside of the US.
Leishman worked for Microsoft New Zealand on contract here before taking on a full-time role. Born in Singapore, she has been in New Zealand for 10 years, she says.
No announcement has been made on a replacement, but Leishman says the selection process is under way.
