Kudos to Owen Allen @owenallen

Good luck to Owen Allen, Former Sr. Product Manager at Microsoft.  My good SharePoint friend Owen Allen is on to bigger and better things.  He was in the latest round of layoffs at Microsoft.  He had been most recently working with the SharePoint Partner ISVs.  That partner team was really stripped down with this latest round. 

He’s got a great attitude and is very upbeat.  I wish him the best of luck.

A couple of recent success stories from the MS Layoffs in the SharePoint World… who stayed in the SharePoint World.

Bob Sutton – Director of Sales and Alliances NINTEX

Jerome Thiebaud – VP Marketing K2

Fascinating to see these guys on products that compete, but great to see these awesome guys stay in the SharePoint world!

Here’s the linked in profile for Owen Allen.  I know he’s looking for something cool.  I’ve been working with Owen for years since CMS was being incorporated especially with his work with the Puget Sound SharePoint User Group and as a PAC WEST TS.  He is a into ECM, CMS, and huge on Business Development.  Say hi to him at WPC. 

Good luck Owen!  We’ll be watching your career.

I LOVE traveling our little planet. In my quest to visit every country in the world I've got about 35 UN countries left! I'm not just country hopping, but looking for the most immersive cultural experiences and capturing them as photos and videos. Yes, I'm also a geek. I've been recognized as a Microsoft Regional Director, a community leadership award. When not traveling, I'm in paradise in sunny southern California as I'm a Senior IT Manager at Blizzard Entertainment.
