“As one of Avanade’s original employees, I’ve spent my career translating technology-enabled business strategies into competitive advantages,” Slattery said. “Avanade’s approach to innovation, combined with its deep expertise in Microsoft technologies, has provided a rich environment for helping clients realize meaningful results in today’s digital world, and I look forward to helping drive Avanade’s continued success in the industry.”

 Slattery joined Avanade at its inception in May 2000 and has served in a number of corporate and operational positions, including President of Hybrid Cloud, Executive Vice President of Global Delivery, General Manager of Strategic Accounts, Vice President of Solutions, General Manager of Corporate Development and Vice President of Strategy, Alliances and Marketing. Prior to joining Avanade, Slattery spent 10 years at Accenture, where he worked with communications, media, financial services and healthcare clients in North America, Europe and Asia.
