Microsoft exec heads to AOL

Posted by Kim Peterson at 10:34 AM


Michael Wehrs

Microsoft has lost an executive to AOL. Michael Wehrs was most recently director of business and industry development at Microsoft, and had the task of increasing industry adoption of Microsoft products, including the upcoming Vista operating system.

Before that he was a key strategist in Microsoft's wireless division, and I interviewed him in that role two years ago for this article.

Wehrs is returning to the wireless side of the business at AOL, and will be chief technical evangelist and the public face for the company's wireless group. He will also be working closely with the group's external partners as well as organizations in industry and government. He'll be based in AOL's Seattle office, which is also the headquarters of the company's wireless division.

Wehrs has been an interim executive at Ignition Partners. He's also held executive positions at Samsung Electronics America and Orcatron Communications.
