Microsoft’s Longtime Windows Boss Terry Myerson To Leave the Company Amid a Huge Executive Reorganization (businessinsider.com)

Terry Myerson, Microsoft’s executive vice president of Windows and a long-time leader at Microsoft, is leaving the company, the company said today. The news comes as part of a big reshuffling of the company’s executive leadership. From a report: “His strong contributions to Microsoft over 21 years from leading Exchange to leading Windows 10 leave a real legacy. I want to thank Terry for his leadership on my team and across Microsoft,” wrote Nadella in an e-mail to employees announcing the changes. As part of the reorganization, Rajesh Jha, the executive VP of Microsoft Office products, will be expanding his responsibilities to encompass Myerson’s role when he leaves in “the coming months.” Jha will become the leader of a group called “Experiences & Devices,” bringing Windows and Office under a single banner. “The purpose of this team is to instill a unifying product ethos across our end-user experiences and devices,” writes Nadella. “Computing experiences are evolving to include multiple senses and are no longer bound to one device at a time but increasingly spanning many as we move from home to work and on the go.”
