Microsoft COO Kevin Turner To Depart, Nadella Shuffles & Centralizes Leadership
Microsoft employees awoke to a blanket email from CEO Satya Nadella about a "Senior Leadership Team Update." He informed the company that COO Kevin Turner would leave the company for the CEO spot at Citadel Securities.
Bloomberg reports that Turner was a CEO candidate before Nadella was appointed. The move seems amicable, but Microsoft Chairman John Thompson let slip in May that the board was considering changes to the sales and partner organizations to boost revenue.
