Microsoft appoints new Xbox and cloud leaders.




Satya Nadella
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is unveiling some management changes today,just days away from the company’s Build developer event in San Francisco.
 In an internal email to employees, Nadella highlights three management changes designed to help the firm "thrive and grow in a mobile-first, cloud-first world.




Phil Spencer
" First, Phil Spencer will take over Xbox and Xbox Live. Spencer will report directly to Windows chief Terry Myerson, and will be responsible for all the software side of Xbox. 






Scott Guthrie

The second management change sees Scott Guthrie take over the cloud and enterprise side of Microsoft, following his two-month acting leader role of that particular business.
 Guthrie has been at Microsoft for more than 15 years, making significant contributions to .NET and Microsoft’s cloud businesses. He’s also popular with developers, and regularly presents at Microsoft’s Build conferences.




Stephen Elop
The final management change is the confirmation of former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop’s role within Microsoft. Once the deal is complete, which is expected to be finalized in April, Elop will join Microsoft an the executive vice president of the Microsoft devices group. It’s a role that will see Elop report directly to Nadella, and he will oversee Windows Phone, Surface, and Xbox hardware.
