Following Vodafone's earlier announcement that Pieter Knook will join Vodafone later this Spring, Microsoft yesterday announced a series of executive promotions - seven new senior vice presidents and seven new corporate vice presidents - reflective of the company’s commitment to build and maintain a strong and dynamic management team across its unique portfolio of businesses. The seven executives promoted to senior vice president are Chris Capossela, Kurt DelBene, Antoine Leblond, Andy Lees, Satya Nadella, S. Somasegar and Bill Veghte. The seven executives promoted to corporate vice president are Walid Abu-Habda Walid Abu-Hadba, Brad Brooks, Larry Cohen, Steve Guggenheimer, Scott Guthrie, Roz Ho and Brian Tobey.

Most interestingly might be the appointment of Andy Lees as the new Senior Vice President for the (Windows) Mobile Communications Business. Previously corporate vice president of the Server & Tools Marketing and Solutions Group, Lees will oversee the development, marketing and sales of software and services that power mobile devices for business and consumer customers worldwide. Lees will fill the role previously held by Pieter Knook.

Cheers ~ Arne

i might be wrong, you may have a typo in Walid's last name. it may be Abu-Hadba and not "Abu-Habda"

Don't know, Microsoft's own press release says "Abu-Habda" and is was mentioned there several times as Habda. Hopefully Microsoft knows the names of their new vice presidents! wink
