Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) CEO shuffles executives around already

Posted Mar 3, 2014

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) CEO Satya Nadella has already shaken up management at the company. Nadella has reportedly named Mark Penn to serve as the chief strategy officer. Penn previously worked as the EVP of advertising and strategy at Microsoft and worked as a former Hillary Clinton pollster.

There are two other executives that are leaving Microsoft: Microsoft EVP of business development Tony Bates (former Skype CEO) and Tami Reller (EVP of marketing). Bates was rumored to be on the list of potential CEOs after Steve Ballmer stepped down.
