There’s a delightful symmetry in using my Microsoft Surface Studio to update my LinkedIn profile and post this note. Effective today, I’m joining Microsoft’s Board of Directors.
Ever since my co-founders and I started LinkedIn in 2003, the company’s mission has been to create new opportunities for every member of the global workforce, and thus boost the economic productivity of these individuals and the companies they work for.
Microsoft, in turn, helps individuals and organizations leverage the power of the professional cloud, transforming how they work through key productivity platforms of data analytics, security, and group collaboration.
