20 Oct Olivia Trilles, the First Female President of Microsoft Partners for the EMEA Region
Early this year, AuraPortal CEO Olivia Trilles was elected the first female President of the “International Association of Microsoft Channel Partners” (IAMCP) for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
Six months into her presidency, Ms. Trilles comments: “My top priority is to help Partners increase their business: win more projects, get bigger, go global. Partner-to-partner activities are vital to achieve this goal, along with training on new legislations such as GDPR and understanding the deep implications of the cloud movement.”
The IAMCP works hard to generate opportunities, promote internationalization, leverage P2P activities and organize events with global thought leaders for Partners to truly benefit from the organization.
I am passionate about the future opportunities of this organization and I’m thrilled to lead such a well prepared and enthusiastic team.
Ms. Trilles is a highly focused and strong-minded woman with a true passion for her work. Her soft-hearted and personable nature captivates and inspires people far and wide.
At the early age of 33, Ms. Trilles was appointed COO of AuraPortal and became CEO of the company six years later. She is credited with spearheading AuraPortal’s growth strategy by expanding the company offer to include cloud computing and analytics. Ms. Trilles has delivered influential keynote speeches at many international conferences and was recently awarded Speaker Excellence at the Microsoft Inspire Partner Conference in Washington D.C.
In addition to her role as President of ‘IAMCP EMEA’, Ms. Trilles is a member of the ‘Microsoft ISV Executive Board’, and is a Board Director of ‘IAMCP International’.
Ms. Trilles also champions diversity and explains how equality is one of her top objectives for IAMCP.
“There is still a lack of women and minorities in leadership positions, and the tech industry, in particular, lacks diversity at all levels. However, the business case for diversity is clear”
explains Ms. Trilles.
“It boosts innovation and employee engagement. Companies with greater gender, age and racial diversity financially outperform their competitors”.
