Two top level executives depart from Microsoft as new CEO Satya Nadella takes over

Microsoft's new CEO, Satya Nadella, is already proving to be a decision gone wrong since two top level executives of the company have deciced to leave and go somwhere else for more opportunities. The departure of Tony Bates would be a great loss of the company. He is the Executive VP of business development/evangelism and former CEO of Skype and along with this the Executive VP of marketing Tami Reller will also be saying his goodbyes to the company. His unfortunate departure has more to do with the fact that Nadella was crowned the CEO whereas his name was on the list of the candidates who were an option for the post of CEO.

Making Bates the CEO would have made more sense since he was able to lead Skype to an eventual acquisition by Microsoft back in 2011. In what is being considered as a letter of response to all that is happening in the company, Nadella has discussed both departures as well as changes in the leadership structure of the company. After the departure of Tami Reller, Chris Capossela will be taking over the post and for a couple of weeks or months, Reller will be guiding Chris through the way and he will leave to persue his other interests once Chris has got the reigns.

A week ago we reported that the developer preview for Cortana in the UK should be heading to these shores in the next few weeks. It has now been confirmed from two Microsoft employees that when she arrives, she won’t be voiced by Jen Taylor, the actress who voices her in the Halo series and who provides the voice for the US version. This is slightly disappointing as it means we don’t get the fully authentic experience, but not too surprisin ...
