Eric Gales has served as the president of Microsoft Canada for nearly three years. However, on May 1, Eric will officially step down as the leader of Microsoft's Canadian division to "pursue other interests.:

Eric took over for Phil Sorgen in 2009. In Eric's stead will be Max Long. Max is a Microsoft veteran; he currently serves as vice president of corporate accounts for Microsoft's worldwide small and midmarket solutions and partner group—which is actually where Phil returned after his stint in Canada.

The Financial Post speculates that Eric will be "taking some personal time off" before deciding what to do next.
