Leila Martine - UK director for Windows Phone, Microsoft
Windows Phone 8 was a coming of age for the Microsoft operating system. The latest spin on its clean and intuitive UI finally showed that Windows Phone was an operating system worthy of standing alongside Apple’s iOS and Android. Microsoft also listened to consumers and made firm inroads in dealing with its underdeveloped apps offering.
Leila Martine has played a key role in substantially growing Windows Phone’s UK market share in less than 12 months, with it now running on almost one in every 10 smartphones. She has also recognised the importance of advocacy, by working alongside Phones 4u in running consumer workshops. If this continues, the UK may finally get the wide-ranging competition it has been praying for.
