I’m convinced that together, we will embark on a great journey in Luxembourg.

Luxembourg is a unique, dynamic and strategic market, booming with digital and sustainable ambitions. That’s why Microsoft went looking for someone with the required experience in the market. Therefore, we are pleased to announce that Sebastien Respaut is joining our team.

Strong customer relationships

Sébastien is thrilled to join the Microsoft family. “As a technology enthusiast, Microsoft has always been part of my life. The past decade, I was really impressed by the agility shown by this large corporation in its strategic choices and its capacity to reinvent itself and how it has built strong and long-term relationships with customers.

Marijke Schroos, General Manager of Microsoft for Belgium and Luxembourg, is delighted that
Sebastien joins Microsoft. “I am very excited to welcome Sébastien to our Belux team. He is the
right person to continue our growth in Luxembourg. He brings a wealth of insights about the
Luxembourg market and will be driving the Luxembourg team towards new opportunities. While
welcoming Sébastien I also want to thank Jean-Benoit Van Bunnen for the great work he has
done in Luxembourg acting as ad interim country lead until Sebastien joins.

Sébastien will continue building on the successes of his predecessor Candi Carrera and the Luxembourg team. “I know how successful the Luxemburgish team is in promoting Microsoft as an essential player on the market and I’m planning to foster new ideas, bring my experience,
and learn from all of my new colleagues to drive innovation and generate business value for our
customers and partners.
