The Team Continues To Grow


I'm back in the office today after a short break.

Before I went on holidays, I was doing a bit of wheeling and dealing to close some of my open postions.

The front page of TechTalkBlogs has the news


So, 2 *new* people are coming to the team

And David Lemphers moves from one role in the team to another

So, the team now looks like this:

(DE) Developer Evangelists  3  Andrew Coates Dave Glover   Charles Sterling  
(DE) Developer Evangelists  2 Michael Kordahi     Scott Barnes  
(AE) Architect Evangelists  4  Anna Liu | TBH Nigel Watson Nils van Boxsel    
(ITE) IT Pro Evangelists  2  Jeff Alexander       Michael Kleef
(ISV DE) ISV Developer Evangelists  2  Shuk Chan David Sajfar      
(MBS DE) MBS ISV Developer Evangelist  1   David Lemphers      
(UXE) User Experience Evangelist  1    Shane Morris      
(EE) Enthusiast Evangelist  1  To Be Hired

Now I better get onto hiring those other 3 roles!

  1. Congratulations to both Scott and Michael, and to Frank and the team for getting some great guys on board.

    The team looks great.

    Nothing in SA… 🙁

    Nothing in SA yet.

    Dglover does a superb job covering it from VIC

    and Mkleef from WA

    but never say never.

    I agree that Dave does an excellent job.  I would just be nice to have some local (on the ground) support.  

    I think there are many lost opportunites (to convert them to MS tools) especially with ISV’s and large corporates, including defence.

    Maybe a local DE or Architect would help… I just feel a bit left out on this side of the border (west of VIC).

    Looking at the stats with 10+ people in the east and 1 in WA (with Dave covering SA), seems a little thin on the ground.

    Hey, maybe it’s just me…

    if there isn’t a IT Pro spot for Queensland (you know, the state with the fastest growth), just what is an IT Pro Architect Advisor (and sholdn’t that be singular as ther is only one position) and what do i need to do to get ready for that…

    Surely you need a Developer Evangelist in the ACT…

    *waves hand jedi stlye, convincing Frank that he is correct*

    While I know I wouldn’t even begin to have the skills necessary to be on this team – I would love to just be an intern, clerk, or "Stationery, Software and Hardware Requisition Officer" [SSHRO] for the SA Team.

    Enthusiast Evangelist? I like that title. I hold a similar self-dubbed title for CSS-Compliance!

  11. My 2 Cents... says:

    Glad to see Stephen wants someone in SA too.  

    After working with Dave and others to get the Vista and Office roadshow in SA (I was one of the speakers…), we had a large interest (around 200+ people turn out).  There are a lot of people/companies interested in the MS technology in SA.  

    What we need (in SA) is an AE who is focussed on pushing the technology.  A lot of companies need to be convinced that MS technology is the way to go, at the CxO level, there needs to be a person focused on this arena.

    I’d put my hand up for an AE position… if there was a chance of it covering SA/WA/NT.

    As you may have seen David Lemphers will be changing his role and will be focusing on Microsoft Dynamics
