Jul 07, 20061 min

Microsoft, the world’s leading producer of software, has named Gordon Frazer as the new leader of its U.K. subsidiary, and he comes from Microsoft South Africa, where he held the general manager post for the past four years, The Register reports.

Frazer will take over for Alistair Baker as Microsoft U.K.’s managing director on July 31, and Baker, who served as the head of Microsoft U.K. since March 2004, will stay with the company in an as-of-yet unknown role, according to The Register.

Frazer first came to Microsoft South Africa’s enterprise sales division in 1995, The Register reports.

“I’m pleased to be moving to the U.K. subsidiary at such an exciting time in Microsoft’s history as we stand poised to launch major new versions of our flagship products: Windows Vista, 2007 Microsoft Office System and Exchange Server 2007,” Frazer said, according to The Register.
