Microsoft Corp. pushed out Steven Sinofsky, president of the Windows operating system division, after clashes with executives, including chief executive officer Steve Ballmer, people with knowledge of the move said.
Sinofsky’s duties were reassigned to Julie Larson-Green, who will take charge of all software and hardware for Windows, and Tami Reller, who will add oversight of the Windows business to her responsibilities in marketing and finance, Redmond, Washington-based Microsoft said in a statement on 12 November.
Both will report directly to Ballmer, effective immediately.
