Andrew Sinclair

Andrew Sinclair, the GM of Skype Product Marketing, is recognized for his experience and leadership in the Consumer and Enterprise Unified Communications fields.  Andrew originally joined Microsoft in 1995 via the acquisition of his first startup, Network Managers U.K. Ltd. He established the Lync team before leaving Microsoft in 2010 to join Skype as a member of the leadership team which transformed Skype into an independent company.
 
Andrew drew upon on his experience building and running large scale services as well as being a respected leader in both startup and corporate environments to successfully integrate Skype with Microsoft.  After the Microsoft acquisition, he led the Lync integration with Skype and ultimately the evolution of Skype into a single global solution spanning consumer and enterprise. During his time at Skype the business has grown from 25 million users to hundreds of millions of monthly users, and over three billion call minutes each day.  Andrew has led growth in every aspect of the Skype: starting with Lync, now called Skype for Business; moving to the Core product and Consumer teams; and now the Skype Product Marketing organization.
 
Andrew lives in Redmond, WA with his wife, two children, and dog called Alfie and splits his time between Redmond and Skype offices in Palo Alto, London, Prague, Stockholm and Tallinn.
