Microsoft reorg: Who's In -- Bill VeghteOn February 14, Microsoft announced a corporate reorganization affecting many of its divisions. As with any Microsoft early-year reorg -- which typically occur after the company's fiscal mid-year reviews -- there are winners and losers.
Leading off the list of winners in this go-around is Bill Veghte, who is now Senior Vice President, Online Services & Windows Business Group. Vehghte's "expanded role" calls for him to spearhead "all end-user business strategy, sales and marketing across Windows Client, Windows Live, MSN and Search. In addition, he will continue to have shared responsibility for OEM sales."
