Former Nokia boss Stephen Elop now in charge of Xbox
: When Microsoft acquired Nokia's mobile business
back in September, the company put Nokia CEO Stephen Elop into the executive vice president role at its Devices & Services division -- the portion of the company that handles Xbox, amongst other devices.
Today, Devices & Services boss Julie Larson-Green announced in an internal Microsoft memo, as reported by TechCrunch
, that she will be changing roles and leaving Elop in charge of the division.
This latest shake-up comes just weeks after Microsoft named Satya Nadella as its new CEO
, a man who has spearheaded strategy and technical shifts at Microsoft, including the company's development of its grand-scale cloud infrastructure, which currently supports the Xbox services.
