Microsoft has named Michael Donlan as vice president of the company’s state and local government business.
In this role, Donlan will help U.S. state and local government organizations move into a new era of citizen services as they maximize the capabilities of technology investments, reduce overall costs, and boost productivity, the company said.
“State and local government leaders need to drive both cost savings and innovation that will allow them to be well-positioned now, but also in the future, as technology, policy and expectations continue to change,” said Donlan. “It is an exciting and challenging time for government, and I look forward to partnering with our state and local government customers to impact and improve the missions they commit to every day.”
Before joining Microsoft in 2003 as the national technology officer for the United States, Donlan was managing director of managed services at BearingPoint and managing technologist for Oracle Corporation’s government, education and healthcare sector.
He currently serves on the executive advisory board for the computer information systems program at James Madison University’s College of Business. Donlan holds a bachelor’s degree in computer information systems from James Madison University.
