Recently, Microsoft launched the Microsoft Regional Directors website at Finally!

Our CEO, Martina Grom, was awarded as Regional Director in 2015, see here. So we are more than happy that there’s now a place where Microsoft informs officially about the Regional Director program.

Since it’s not well known, what the Regional Director award is about, there’s a FAQ list at

The most frequently asked questions are, if Regional Directors (RD’s) are employed by Microsoft, how they are selected or if they are also MVP. The FAQ’s answer these questions clearly, see the statements summarized here:

On the two-page website, Microsoft informs about the Regional Directors program and there’s a search function included. You can find RD’s easily and view the result in a map or in a list. When clicking on a person, there’s a link to the page of the Regional Director, for example Martina Grom.


We are proud that Martina Grom is one out of two Regional Directors in Austria.

Rainer Stropek is the second RD in Austria. In the past, Christian Nagel held that award for about a decade.

We also congratulate our MVP colleague Carsten Rachfahl for being awarded as Regional Director in Germany recently.
