The NWC Interivew: John Wood, Founder, Room to Read

John Wood
Founder, Room to Read

What position did you hold with Microsoft before you left to start Room to Read?

When I left in 1999 I was director of business development for the greater China region.

Some might find it ironic that a former Microsoft executive focuses on bringing books, rather than computers or the Internet, to the developing world.
