After nearly 5 years for me under Butt Wai Choon, the Microsoft Malaysia subsidiary will be changing the big boss. To quote The Star Online:-

"KUALA LUMPUR: Yasmin Mahmood has been appointed managing director of Microsoft Malaysia with effect from early September 2006. 

One of Yasmin’s first major tasks as Microsoft managing director will be to oversee the launch of the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system and also the 2007 Microsoft Office System, scheduled for January 2007. 

Yasmin was previously the general manager of Dell Malaysia and corporate director of Dell Inc. Prior to that, she was the general manager of Hewlett Packard Sales Malaysia’s Commercial Channels Organisation. 

Yasmin succeeds Butt Wai Choon, who has been promoted to Asia-Pacific general manager of Microsoft’s OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) group.  

Butt will continue to oversee and manage business at Microsoft Malaysia until Yasmin comes on board officially in September."
