After 21 years at Microsoft Australia, Pip Marlow is leaving the software giant to join Suncorp as its first CEO of Strategic Innovation.

Steven Worrall, Microsoft’s Director of Enterprise and Partner Group, steps into the role of Managing Director.

“After two decades, it is time to move to a new challenge,” said Marlow. “I leave the Australian business in excellent shape and I know that Steven will be a great and impactful leader.”


Marlow served as MD for 6 years, and recently appeared at the ACS Reimagination panel session on ‘Commercial applications of artificial intelligence and the opportunities for your operations’.


Incoming MD Worrall acknowledged Marlow’s contributions to the business which included opening Microsoft’s first flagship store outside of North America.


“Pip has been a tremendous leader and the strength of our leadership team is a testament to Pip’s stewardship over the last six years,” he said.


Worrall begins his new role on 1 January 2017. Marlow will transition out of the Microsoft business by the end of January.
