Anna Chester

Microsoft Support and Marketing Manager

Hello everyone! My name’s Anna Chester and I’m the Microsoft Support and Marketing Manager in the Software and Licensing Department at SHI. I manage teams responsible for support resources for Microsoft. My support team handles inquiries from our reps and customers about Microsoft products and licensing, while the marketing team works to ensure that the latest Microsoft news is shared through our newsletters, webinars, e-blasts, and in-person events.

I joined SHI in 1997, starting out on the growing Inside Sales team. I’ve also served as Microsoft Product Champ, Microsoft Marketing Generalist, and Licensing Executive. Outside of work I enjoy traveling (anywhere with a beach works great for me!), and I’m an avid hockey fan (Go Rangers!).
