We are very happy and also proud that our CEO, Martina Grom, was awarded as Microsoft Regional Directory (RD) shortly!
There's a lot going on over at Microsoft these days. The RD program is designed to honor world-wide technology leaders who are an active part of the community and who have impact in sharing knowledge around the globe.
See the new RD-website http://msrd.io/ for mission statements.
The Microsoft RD program exists since 1993 (for an older description see also wikipedia.org).
Regional Directors are a close group of technology experts with a strong focus on community work, in authoring technology books, articles and blogs as well as speaking at events and conferences, see also What is Microsoft Regional Director Program.
Many RD´s are also Microsoft MVP´s as Martina is MVP for Office 365 since five years now.
Martina is now Regional Director among other well known experts like Christian Nagel (AT), Damir Tomicic (DE), Christian Weyer (DE) and many other experts worldwide.
We also congratulate our colleagues Rainer Stropek from software-architects for being awarded as third RD in Austria as well as the new RD Frank Solinske in Germany!
Congratulations to all (new) Regional Directors!
