/// Exclusive: Microsoft Strategy Exec Hank Vigil to Depart, Will Remain Strategic Adviser

July 1, 2011  |  All Things Digital


Microsoft’s SVP of Strategy and Partnership Hank Vigil will be leaving the software giant to focus on investing in and advising for early-stage start-up companies, according to an internal memo. But the 25-year company veteran will also become a “strategic adviser” to Microsoft. That’s probably a good idea, since Vigil is one of the company’s most visible and well-liked execs in the tech community, especially in Silicon Valley. He also is Microsoft’s best-dressed exec, if I might be so bold to say. Vigil has had wide-ranging jobs all over Microsoft in his many years there. He has most recently been working directly with Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, according to his company bio , “developing and managing strategic relationships, mergers, acquisitions and investment partnerships with media, consumer electronics, telecommunications, software and Internet companies.” In that role, Vigil has worked on a range of deals, including with Facebook, Nokia, News Corp. and many others.
