Jeffrey Brown

Jeffrey is currently focused on managing an emerging real estate portfolio while cultivating a dynamic relationship with the Atlanta Metropolitan community. He is excited about the opportunity to leverage his broad experiences and unique perspective in the integration of Microsoft values and mission with the local culture.

In his previous role in Seattle, Washington, Jeffrey managed over 3 million ft2 (or ~30 buildings) of corporate real estate. His primary objective was to bridge the gap between service delivery and Employee Experience leveraging a vast network of vendor service providers. He was also responsible for the agility and evolution of comprehensive service programs (contracts) for the Seattle area Campus. For example, he partnered with the Janitorial Service Provider to develop an innovative waste collection, sort, and diversion proposal that would enable Microsoft to sort 100% of waste generated on campus. The bulk of his time in this role is listening to the “voice of the customer” to identify opportunities to enhance the overall experience of visitors, vendors, and employees in Puget Sound. Prior to returning to Microsoft, Jeffrey was a Senior Manager of the Supply Chain Management (SCM) group at Citrix Systems, where he demonstrated thought leadership in Risk Management, Controls & Compliance (C&C), and Business Process Improvement.

In 17 years, Jeffrey has accumulated experience across multiple industries within organizations of various scale and size. The pivotal period in his career was the 4-year stint in Internal Audit at Microsoft. While in Internal Audit, he participated in (and managed) projects across Asia Pacific, ANZ, Europe, Middle East, and North America. He also developed relationships with key stakeholders across multiple business groups during his time within the organization. These strategic relationships and strong understanding of the company’s operations led to obtaining a key role within the Corporate Close Research & Development Finance organization. During his brief time in role, he developed the C&C program and key metrics to measure the overall health of the org’s C&C environment. Before joining Microsoft, Jeffrey spent 3 years as an Associate in the Assurance practices of Moss Adams LLP and KPMG LLP.

Jeffrey was born and raised in the area formally known as South Central Los Angeles. His parents sacrificed to invest in 12 years of his education to escape the uncertainty of matriculating through an underperforming school district. As a result, Jeffery was able to earn an athletic and educational scholarship to attend Saint Mary’s College of CA. He capitalized by earning his Bachelor’s degree in Accounting and is currently a licensed Certified Public Accountant in California. In his spare time, he enjoys international travel, bowling, golfing, hosting small events, and spending time with his friends and family. His flexibility and opportunistic mindset, has empowered him to enjoy an abundance of life and professional experiences across 30 states and over 50 countries.
