Whitney Cubbison

Whitney Cubbison is an American communications professional living in Paris. She was born and raised in Texas and then moved to California to pursue a French degree at UCLA, starting a decade-long stay in California. She began her career as a technology consultant for PricewaterhouseCoopers in San Francisco (because they had an office in France… which seemed like a good enough reason at the time).

She quickly realized she liked technology but wanted to spend her time talking about it, rather than building it, so she transitioned into public relations. She worked for several high tech PR agencies in San Francisco at the height of the technology boom and during the lean years following the technology bust. She represented clients including HP, Sun Microsystems, Cisco, Oracle and many more in enterprise technology.

Whitney moved to Seattle, Washington in 2005 and began working in PR for Microsoft’s Online Services Division. In 2009, she led the global PR launch of Bing, Microsoft’s search engine, and a few months later, she fulfilled her dream to get to France by taking the job as Executive Communications Director for Microsoft International. She has since held numerous roles in communications for Microsoft in Europe, the Middle East and Africa and currently serves as Microsoft’s Communications Director for Western Europe, covering internal and external communications across 14 countries.
