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.
