Sarah Croxford

I have been in the IT industry for the last 25 years within both telco, networking and software industry.

A graduate of Logistic Systems and an placement in British Steel in the steelworks always saw Sarah breaking the boundaries in a male dominated industry. It was only a matter of time before Sarah entered into IT, with a career spanning roles in Siemens Communications, Tech Data, Ingram Micro through to becoming a Marketing Director for a Taiwanese router manufacturer. I joined Microsoft 12 years ago within their Marketing Development Partner team. Latter roles included the launch of Windows 7 and Windows 10 as a Product Manager and in the last seven years a movement into IT sales within the partner channel team and the last 12 months focused on selling cloud software solutions into the healthcare markets within the NHS and private sector. I am a Fellow of the Institute of Sales Management and judge for the Business Development category for the British Excellence in Sales Management Awards (2018 and 2020)

A mum of two primary school aged boys with special needs has led me to become a Schools Digital Ambassador, Microsoft Accessibility & Digital Champion and a Board Trustee for Parenting Special Children – supporting parents and carers of children with special needs.
