In his current role, Capossela runs marketing operations for both the commercial and consumer businesses, including marketing for all Microsoft products, services, brands, advertising, events, research and communications. He assumed his current role in March of 2014.
Capossela first joined Microsoft in 1991, and he has spent the last 30 years working in various roles across the company. His career began as a marketing manager for the Windows Seminar team from 1991 to 1992, and over the years has included roles like program manager for Microsoft Access, product manager for Desktop Database products, and speech assistant to Bill Gates, early in his career.
In 2003, Capossela joined the Microsoft Office division of the company as corporate vice president for Office Marketing.
