Microsoft Bangladesh Managing Director Sonia Bashir Kabir is going to leave the firm after completion of five year service with the technology giant.

She was also responsible as head of country operations of Microsoft at Nepal, Bhutan and Laos territory alongside of her homeland.

Her last day with Microsoft will be April 30, according to a statement from Microsoft Bangladesh on Tuesday.

Sonia, however, will not join any other multinational technology firm. She has decided to focus on her own companies and startups across South East Asia where she has invested as an angel investor, read the statement.
