Microsoft marketer David McLean departs after 15 years

McLean: 15-year Microsoft veteran

Senior Microsoft marketer David McLean has resigned after 15 years with the company.

McLean is to leave his post as director of Microsoft’s consumer channels group to ‘pursue other interests’. The search is on for a replacement.

A statement to Mumbrella read: “Microsoft can confirm that after 15 years with the business, including the past year as Consumer Channels Group (CCG) lead, David McLean has made the decision to leave the business to pursue other interests. He has made a strong contribution to the business and we wish him well for the future. The CCG business will report directly to Microsoft Managing Director, Pip Marlow, until a new appointment has been made.”

In the role, McLean led strategy for Windows PCs, Windows Phones, Xbox 360, Microsoft Office and Microsoft keyboards through telco, online and retail channels.

When he took the job late last year, it was a new role, with the tech giant’s retail, distribution and mobile operator teams all reporting into McLean.

During his 15 year stint with the company, McLean has filled a number of roles including entertainment and devices regional director, Australia and New Zealand and regional group manager Xbox sales and marketing.
