Cernuda will lead Microsoft's business in Asia Pacific, which includes 17 offices in 12 countries, Microsoft said in a statement.
He will be responsible for leading the company's commercial and consumer product, services and support offerings, as AP continues its aggressive consumption of cloud, mobile, big data and social technologies.
A Microsoft veteran of some 16 years, Cernuda was most recently Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Services for Microsoft's Latin American operations, based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
