Microsoft Moves Developer Evangelism And Experiences Team Under Sales, Marketing And Services Group

Yesterday, Microsoft confirmed that Peggy Johnson will join Microsoft’s Senior Leadership team. She will be the executive vice president of business development and will be responsible for driving strategic business deals and partnerships across various industries with key customers, strategic innovation partners, OEMs, key accounts, third-party publishers and industry influencers. Eric Rudder, Microsoft’s executive vice president of advanced strategy who was temporarily looking after the responsibilities of Tony Bates after he left Microsoft is now back to his old job. Peggy Johnson will now take care of the work which was handled by Tony Bates in the past. In addition to these changes, Microsoft has now moved Developer Evangelism and Experiences team from Eric Rudder’s division to sales, marketing and services group led by Kevin Turner.

In addition, the company’s newly named Developer Evangelism and Experiences team (formerly Developer and Platform Evangelism), led by Steve Guggenheimer, will shift from Rudder’s organization to Microsoft’s sales, marketing and services group (SMSG), reporting to Microsoft COO Kevin Turner.
