Cathy Wissink

Senior Director, International Standards, Microsoft

With over 25 years’ experience in the technology industry, Cathy Wissink has been fortunate enough to work on a diverse portfolio of products and programs that serve a global audience. Having worked in both product development and technology policy, she has had the opportunity to merge both areas into her current role as Senior Director of International Standards at Microsoft, where she leads a global team responsible for technical standards in the international, regional and national level.

Cathy got to know the Design Museum during her time living in Boston, and was honored to join the Council. She’s especially enthusiastic about Design Museum’s civic and social impact work.

She currently lives in Western Washington, where she spends as much of her free time outdoors as possible.
