Wilson Garone

Wilson Garone joined Microsoft Brazil in FY96 as subsidiary Controller, where he worked for 4 years partnering with the local GM and experiencing the high growth of one of the largest Emerging Markets in MS. Doing business in MS was different at that time, the job of a high growth subsidiary Controller was intense on business partnership and enabling new growth opportunities, and lighter in Rhythm of Finance processes. In FY00, Wilson moved to Ft Lauderdale to be the Regional Controller for Latin America, leading a group of 60 talented Finance employees and providing Finance support to the Latam Regional VP. In the Regional role, Wilson focused his time building a solid Finance team, based on a Blue Print proposal, creating Finance communities in the Region, implementing the Rhythm of Finance process, driving productivity projects (i.e. consolidation of subsidiaries) and business growth projects (i.e. Financing programs for Small Business). After 4 years in the Regional Office, Wilson moved to Redmond, where he was the WW SMSG GM of Finance for 8 years, supporting the COO organization (Kevin Turner) and deploying/managing Finance processes for SMSG (i.e. Growth Framework, Controls & Compliance, Core Finance, Target Setting). In summer 2013, Wilson was appointed CFO for SMSG, supporting Kevin Turner and leading the most talented Finance Organization in the world. Before MS, Wilson spent 9 years in different finance roles in Kodak. Wilson is graduated in Business Administration at Fundaçao Getulio Vargas, a leading business school in Latin America, with Finance extension courses at Insead and Harvard.
