Stephen Elop to take over as head of Microsoft Devices and Studios

Microsoft has been building up to the completion of the purchase of Nokia's hardware side for a while. We also knew that Microsoft wanted Elop to come back to the software giant after the purchase was complete. We learned he would receive over $24 million last September once the deal was complete this year.

Rumors suggest that Elop will come back to Microsoft after the Nokia purchase is complete reports VideoGamer. Elop will take over as head of the Microsoft Devices and Studios group according to reports. That group is currently headed up by Julie Larson-Green. She will be transferring to a new position within the company as the head of the Applications and Services group.

Larson-Green has only been at her current spot with Microsoft for 7 months. She will continue in her current role until the purchase of Nokia is complete. That is expected to happen this quarter. In his new position, Elop will be in charge of Xbox and Microsoft Surface. Elop was considered in the running to replace Ballmer as CEO of Microsoft, but the software giant went with a different candidate.

Microsoft hasn’t come out and confirmed the rumor just yet, but this is no surprise. Microsoft has been working to get Elop back for a while. I wonder if the move has anything to do with the performance of Larson-Green? The Xbox One is being outsold by most counts by the PS4 and the Surface line of tablets aren’t popular.
