Microsoft: Panos Panay Names Amanda Langowski As Windows Insider Program Head

By Amit Chowdhry ● March 23, 2020

Today Microsoft chief product officer Panos Panay announced that Amanda Langowski has been named as the new head of the Windows Insider Program. Langowski is succeeding Dona Sarkar — who stepped down from the position in order to lead the advocacy for Microsoft’s Power Platform. 

Langowski has been working at Microsoft for about 20 years. 

“Amanda’s passion for Windows is evident in her 20-year career at Microsoft, which began with coordinating beta programs for Windows. Since then, she’s been an extraordinary and dedicated product maker for the company. In meeting Amanda, one thing that is immediately apparent is her passion for customer feedback and the positive impact it can have on our products. 

Langowski has been leading the Flighting Platform Team and coordinated the release of every new build that goes to Insiders. This enabled one of Microsoft’s most powerful streams of customer feedback.

“More inspiring than the work she has done though is her vision for the future and her desire to help connect our engineers with customers, providing clarity on how their feedback transforms the way we build experiences for all our Windows 10 customers. All while driving the Windows Insider Program forward by enhancing our communication with legacy Insiders and growing the diversity of our community to ensure more customers are reflected in the products we’re building together,” added Panay.
