Judge Says Former Microsoft GM Matthew Miszewski Cannot Join Marketing Role In Salesforce.com

Judge Kimberley Prochnau in the King County Superior Court has filed a preliminary injunction against Matthew Miszewski. Miszewski attempted to join Salesforce.com, but this was in violation of his non-compete agreement. Miszewki is prohibited from “working in a marketing role in salesforce.com’s public or commercial sector anywhere in the world.”

However Judge Prochnau said that she still envisions Miszewski having a role at Salesforce.com that would not violate the non-compete agreement. “He was a major evangelist for Microsoft — he was not a low-level salesperson,” said Judge Prochnau. She added “thrust of the order is to preclude him from being the evangelist for Salesforce.com that he was for Microsoft.”
