Microsoft loses Windows president
Microsoft has announced that Windows president Steven Sinofsky will be leaving the company.
“I am grateful for the many years of work that Steven has contributed to the company,” said Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. “The products and services we have delivered to the market in the past few months mark the launch of a new era at Microsoft.
"To continue this success it is imperative that we continue to drive alignment across all Microsoft teams, and have more integrated and rapid development cycles for our offerings.”
Julie Larson-Green will be promoted to lead all Windows software and hardware engineering. Since 1993, she has worked on the development of Microsoft products, including the UX for early versions of Internet Explorer, and helped drive the refresh of Microsoft Office.
Tami Reller retains her roles as CFO and CMO and will be responsible for managing the business of Windows.
