Microsoft Corp. Chief Executive Officer Satya Nadella announced a broad reorganization of the company’s senior executive ranks as long-time Chief Operating Officer Kevin Turner prepares to leave for another job.
Instead of naming one new COO, Nadella appointed two executives to divvy up the sales responsibilities and report to him. Jean-Philippe Courtois will be in charge of global sales, marketing and operations spanning Microsoft’s 13 business areas, Nadella said in a note to employees Thursday. Judson Althoff will lead the worldwide commercial business, including government and small and medium-sized businesses.
Other executives already reporting to Nadella will take on other parts of Turner’s job, with Chris Capossela leading worldwide marketing, Kurt DelBene leading IT and Chief Financial Officer Amy Hood taking over the sales and marketing team’s finance group, which had been separate.
