Valo APAC is stronger than ever as Mark Powney joins the team!
Mark Powney, experienced Microsoft Cloud developer and consultant, is set to join Valo’s APAC team in July 2020 as the new Technical Partner Manager. Over recent years Mark has been implementing modern workplace experiences on the Office 365 platform, and now brings his expertise to Valo’s APAC partners and customers to help them leverage Valo products to their full potential. Mark follows hot on the heels of 2 other recent Aussie Valo recruits, but he will be working closely with Valo partners in the region to provide partner support, product evangelism and pre-sales support.
This is a great opportunity for me as someone who has worked for over a decade in the consulting space, largely for Australian customers. Now I can venture into product delivery for the Microsoft 365 platform and support Valo partners who, with my experience, I’ll be able to relate closely to. It’s going to be a nice change.
I know I’m joining a world-wide team that have a wealth of expertise in the Microsoft 365 platform, and am grateful for the opportunity to join the Valo APAC team. Although the whole team is across different time zones, I can’t help but notice the “vibe” you get from everyone at Valo: in Europe, in North America and, of course, more recently here in Australia. Everyone loves the work they do at Valo. It’s truly a remarkable team to join!
Mark’s passion for digital transformation, dedication and excellent technical skills will enable Valo APAC to provide much stronger partner and customer support than ever before!
Mark is an active Australian Microsoft 365 community member. He is already well known across the Valo community, but debuted his new role within Valo by presenting a session about designing Static Web Apps at Valo Fest, the 24h online event about digital workplaces arranged by Valo in June 2020. See Mark’s session here.
To put on a world-wide event and get such an exceptional cross-section of talent speaking at the event, is no small task. I was a little bit nervous since I’ve not really spoken to this section of the community before, but I guess it was my first taste at what is possible when you have a team of dedicated people talking about topics they love. Also, juggling is hard! 🙂
On behalf of the entire Valo crew, thanks and welcome on board! We’re so happy to have you join the team.
NB: We loved your fabulous and informative Valo Fest session!
