The face of Microsoft channel efforts with U.S. partners is assuming a new role in the organization.

Tyler Bryson, Microsoft’s corporate vice president of global partner solutions for the U.S., is now working as corporate vice president of health public sector industries for the U.S. His appointment marks another departure of a key executive from Microsoft’s partner business, following Rodney Clark’s exit in May. However, Bryson will continue to support the U.S. partner business as it looks for a new leader.

He’ll remain the interim corporate vice president for global partner solutions in the U.S. while working in his new job.

Bryson announced the news on LinkedIn on Tuesday, to a chorus of congratulations.

Here’s our list of channel people on the move in June.

“With the new fiscal year underway, I am excited to share that I’ve been asked to lead Microsoft’s health and public sector industries (HPSI) organization,” Bryson wrote. “As I begin this new chapter, I am so grateful for my incredible global partner solutions, US leadership team, who will help me ensure continuity throughout the transition.”

Melanie Simpson, vice president of human resources at Microsoft, added some details in a LinkedIn post. She said Bryson has succeeded in a variety of teams at Microsoft, including in the partner organization. She echoed Bryson’s comment that he will remain engaged with the U.S. channel team, supporting Microsoft partners.

“He will be continuing to support GPSUS in the interim and will be deeply involved in the selection of the new GPSUS leader in the coming months,” Simpson wrote.

Rodney Clark replaced Gavriella Schuster in 2021 as corporate vice president, global channels and channel chief. He served for more than a year during a time when Microsoft rolled out new partner incentives and tiering. Clark went on to join Johnson Controls as chief commercial officer.
