Christopher Capossela Biography and Net Worth

CMO of Microsoft

Christopher Capossela is the chief marketing officer at Microsoft. 

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. In this role, Capossela oversaw Office’s growth from its core suite of applications to include Microsoft Exchange, Lync, SharePoint and Office 365. Capossela also played a role in moving Office to the cloud with the introduction of Office 365 and Office Web Apps. 

In 2011, he moved on to the role of chief marketing officer, where he led the company’s central marketing group. It was in this role that he created the Consumer Channels Group to drive sales and marketing to Microsoft’s consumer products through retail, operator, and OEM partners. 

Capossela’s most recent role before becoming CMO in 2014 was as corporate vice president for the consumer channels group, where he led marketing and sales activities with telco, OEM, and retail partners. 

Capossela’s interest in technology first began when he created a reservation system for his family’s small Italian restaurant in Boston as a young boy. In that venture, he used an early IBM PC to write the system, but it sparked a passion that eventually turned into his long and successful career with Microsoft. 

He currently serves as the board chair for Worldreader. From 2019 to 2020, he and his wife were the co-chairs for the annual campaign for the United Way of King County to raise money to support anti-poverty efforts throughout the Seattle area.
