NOVEMBER 30, 2017

Jakarta. The American multinational technology company Microsoft appointed Haris Izmee as its new president director for Indonesian operations to oversee the company's digital transformation, according to a statement released on Thursday (30/11).

"Haris brings an impressive portfolio of business success with him," Andrea Della Mattea, Microsoft Asia Pacific president, said.

"We know that Indonesia is in an incredible position to seize new growth opportunities, and I’m excited that Haris will be leading our customers and partners towards digital transformation," Mattea said.

Prior to his appointment as Microsoft Indonesia's president director, Izmee, who is replacing Andreas Diantoro, was the country manager and director of General Electric Healthcare Indonesia. During his tenure at GEHC, Izmee expanded GE's healthcare business.

Before GEHC, the Queen Mary University of London alumnus led the sales of all commercial aircraft engines at GE Aviation, where he was "instrumental" in winning some of the largest projects in the company's history in Indonesia.

"I am thrilled to be joining Microsoft," Izmee said, noting that he has admired the tech company for years.

Izmee said Microsoft has ample opportunities to help customers capitalize on new, more digitalized business models amid Indonesia's aspirations to become the largest digital economy in Southeast Asia by 2020.
