A new chapter in my career: Avanade


After 7 inspiring years at Macaw I decided that it was time for something new. On April 1st I started my new job as a SharePoint Architect at Avanade in the Netherlands!

I have always been very happy at Macaw and I want to thank everyone there, and in particular the people at the Information Worker Solutions center for 7 great years. I also want to thank Macaw for the opportunities they offered me with regards to doing the MCM (both for SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint 2010) and for the support I got for my work in the SharePoint community.

The main reason for changing jobs to start working for Avanade is that I wanted to do bigger and more challenging projects. I will still be doing all the community work I was doing before, so in that respect nothing will change. One of the reasons I chose Avanade is that they will give me the opportunity to keep doing my community work.
So far, after one week, I’m still very happy with my decision. I got a very warm welcome at Avanade, everyone is very nice and tries to help me to get up and running as fast and as smooth as possible and I already started on a very cool, big and challenging project at a customer.
I already know that my second week will be great as well, seeing as I’ll be in London next week for the SharePoint Best Practices Conference 2011.

I’m looking forward to working on a lot of cool projects for Avanade and to keep meeting all of you in the SharePoint community.
