Adam Byrnes

Microsoft

Class of 2014



Adam loves commercializing technology that solves big problems. He has worked with three start-ups each using technology to affect change: first at a start-up using the internet to make homes greener, then at an early-stage company using LEDs to disrupt the commercial lighting market, and then at an Indian-based start-up using technology to deliver energy to the 400 million Indians living off less than $2 a day. Currently Adam focuses on opening new markets for Microsoft’s Office 365 by driving their global data center strategy, setting their market expansion road map, and evaluating new ways to provide value for customers in emerging markets.

Adam spends his free time fiddling with his camera, playing racquetball, and backpacking around National Parks. He earned degrees in American Studies and Political Science at Cal State Fullerton.
