In her new role, Hauser will lead and have accountability for Microsoft's Worldwide Commercial Industry Sectors, including Worldwide Financial Services, Worldwide Distribution and Services, Worldwide Manufacturing and Resources, and the Global Accounts Organization.

"Our No. 1 priority continues to be to ensure that our customers and partners realize the most business value from their relationships with Microsoft. I look to meeting this challenge by leveraging the combined strength of our Worldwide Industry and Global Accounts organizations to ensure that our industry solutions are tightly aligned to the needs of our top accounts and other enterprise customers."

Among her considerable accomplishments, Hauser was responsible for creating Microsoft's first Financial Services organization with the goal of developing a deeper understanding of Microsoft's financial services industry customers and aligning the company's efforts to better meet their business needs.

Hauser is a board member for the nonprofit organization NPower in New York and has been recognized as a noteworthy role model by Exploring Posts and LISNET for her contributions to the community, youth and women.
