Sonia will not be joining another multinational technology firm

Sonia Bashir Kabir—managing director of Microsoft Bangladesh, Myanmar, Nepal, Bhutan and Laos—is leaving Microsoft after almost five years of service. 

Her last day with Microsoft will be on April 30. 

The industry veteran will help the company with the transition process during this period. 

Sonia will not join any other multinational technology firms, rather, she will focus her time on her own companies and startups across Southeast Asia.

There is speculation that she might be starting a new deep tech venture with international investor backing.

Sonia is a role model for women and youth in the country. She is highly-respected in the business community and has advisory board roles in many universities.

Besides her role at Microsoft, she is also the Founder of Tech Hubs—empowering rural communities with technology—Vice Chairman and Governing Council Board Member of the United Nations Technology Bank for Least Developed Countries.

She is also the Board member of UNESCO’s Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Education & Peace, Vice Chairman, and Co-Founder of Fintech startup D Money plus health startup Syntec.
