Tonya Neff Klause manages communications and public relations for Microsoft’s U.S. Health, Government and Education business (a roughly $4 billion business for Microsoft), one of the world’s largest and most renown organizations.
Twice recognized as the Top Marketing Contributor in a five-year period, Klause is also part of the Senior Leader “Bench” program, a high-potential select-leadership program for the top 4% of talent across the company.
Reflecting on her time at Messiah and in the Department of Management and Business, Klause says: “I appreciated the breadth and depth of training we received from knowledgeable, committed faculty and leaders. Although each had their own style, we were challenged towards excellence in study and a deepening commitment to faith in God and service of others.”
She adds, “Messiah, generally, prepared me to enter a world not only knowledgeable in my key areas of study, but with confidence in a Christ-centered world view as the basis for pursuing a life of service and excellence in my profession. The Department of Management and Business, specifically, provided a needed foundation for me in the world of marketing, on which my internships, ancillary experiences, graduate school immersion and ultimately career path could nicely build.”
