Presently, he is responsible for $275 million/year of cloud consumption spanning all major verticals. Though Vincent started full-time in the DeGroote MBA program in 2010, he switched to the part-time program and graduated in 2015 as Microsoft offered him a full-time role after a 1 year marketing coop.
