Why we care. In pure “International Women’s Day” fashion, a new woman leader could have a significant impact on the company’s strategy, product offerings, and overall direction. Sainsbury-Carter could bring in fresh ideas and perspectives, which can lead to changes in the company’s marketing approach and target audience.

Sainsbury-Carter is well-respected and has a strong track record with Microsoft Advertising. Ideally, this change could improve consumer trust in Microsoft and make it a more attractive partner for advertisers.
