About Ralph Haupter
With more than 25 years’ experience in the tech sector and in managing diverse geographical regions, I’m passionate about technology’s role in empowering organizations to be more competitive, supporting local economic growth and improving the lives of citizens.
I work with our customers, governments, and partners to drive transformation through innovation, and see a future in which technology augments every individual and organization – enabling us to work smarter and live better. I believe in organizations doing their part in protecting the environment and welcome the opportunity to partner with more and more business leaders to help them achieve their sustainability goals.
I also believe a global mindset is crucial in offering the most value to customers. I recently relocated back to Europe and now serve as the President for Microsoft Europe, Middle East, and Africa after working in Asia over the last eight years. In my previous role as the President of Microsoft Asia, I focused on unlocking the region’s digital ambitions. Prior to that, I was Corporate Vice-President, Chairman, and CEO of Microsoft Greater China Region.
Beginning my career with Microsoft in Europe, I was the General Manager of Microsoft’s Small and Mid-market Solutions & Partners Group for Western Europe. I went on to serve as COO and then CEO of Microsoft Germany.
