Microsoft Regional Director (RD), Most Valuable Professional (MVP) and Collabtalk Founder Christian Buckley Joins AvePoint As Microsoft Go-To-Market Director

Buckley becomes AvePoint’s third Microsoft Regional Director

AvePoint, the largest data management solutions provider for the Microsoft cloud, announced today it has hired CollabTalk Founder and CEO Christian Buckley as its Microsoft Go-To-Market Director.

Buckley is a well-known Microsoft technology expert. He has provided go-to-market guidance for dozens of companies, authored six books on enterprise collaboration and created the popular productivity blog buckleyPlanet.

He currently holds Microsoft MVP and Regional Director designations. Less than 200 people worldwide hold the title of Regional Director, which Microsoft reserves for the most respected independent voices in its ecosystem.

In his role, Buckley will lead partnership efforts across product engineering, marketing, and field team co-sell between AvePoint and Microsoft as well as manage strategic Microsoft corporate relationships.

“As Microsoft’s top global co-sell partner for Microsoft Teams, it is essential that AvePoint and Microsoft are aligned in our vision and understanding of customer values and uses cases,” said Dr. Tianyi Jiang, CEO, AvePoint. “Christian will play an important role in ensuring our technology evolves alongside Microsoft to solve those critical last-mile needs that make organizations’ digital collaboration more productive, secure and compliant in Microsoft 365.”

“I’ve witnessed the value of AvePoint’s customer-centric solutions, consistent growth and close partnership with Microsoft over the last 19 years,” said Buckley. “AvePoint is the clear leader in data management solutions for digital collaboration. After years of watching from the sidelines, I’m excited to play an active role in helping shape that leadership position in the years to come.”
