Theodosis Michalopoulos has been officially confirmed as Microsoft CEO for Malta, Cyprus and Greece following a short transitional period.
Mr Michalopoulos has enjoyed a long and successful career in the technology industry. Until today, he served as Microsoft’s sales director for Enterprise Commercial and Public Sector for the markets of Malta, Cyprus and Greece.
In a statement, he said: "This is a uniquely fortuitous moment in time, both for the company as well as the economy in general. New technologies are steadily on the rise, markets appear increasingly open to adopting them, while collectively, as a society, we are beginning to understand the immense positive effect they could have. I believe this is a great opportunity for our customers and partners, as well as for Microsoft."
Mentioning Malta specifically, he added: "We are here, for the past 15 years, committed to empower Malta towards extroversion and growth, by harnessing the power of technology and by constantly providing innovative and trusted solutions. Let's build our path for the next decade!"
The newly appointed CEO intends to focus on further promoting the digital transformation of private and public businesses and organisations, with an emphasis on advanced technologies, cloud adoption and AI solutions.
He joined Microsoft in 2014, as Sales Director for the Consumer Channels Group. Before that, he worked at Vodafone, holding executive positions in both Sales and Marketing.
Mr Michalopoulos holds a BEng in Electrical & Electronic Engineering from the University of Sussex, an MSc in Communications & Signal Engineering from the Imperial College of Science and Technology in London and an MBA from the Athens Laboratory of Business Administration (ALBA).
