|New Enterprise Sales, Phone Leaders|
Enterprise sales and Windows Phone have new managers after two separate reorganizations announced in Dec. 2011.
Susan Hauser has been named corporate vice president, Worldwide Enterprise & Partner Group. She will lead sales, marketing, partner development, and strategy for the company's largest customers, including Microsoft's units for vertical markets, public sector organizations, and global sales accounts. Hauser replaces Simon Witts, who left Microsoft in Sept. 2011. She most recently headed the company's vertical sales and global accounts unit and has held a variety of roles since joining Microsoft in 1989, including leading sales and marketing for financial services companies in the U.S. East Region and serving as general manager for the New York Metro district. Hauser will report to Kevin Turner, Microsoft's chief operating officer. Enterprise sales have been a consistent bright spot this fiscal year, as companies have moved to new PCs running Windows 7 and Office 2010 and expanded their commitments through multiyear volume licensing contracts.
Terry Myerson has been named corporate vice president, Windows Phone Division, and will oversee the entire Windows Phone business. Myerson most recently led software development for the division, including the team that developed the Windows Phone platform. Before coming to Windows Phone, Myerson led the company's Exchange Server unit for eight years. He joined Microsoft in 1997 when Microsoft acquired IntersÉ, a Web site analysis software company that he founded. Myerson will report directly to Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and replaces Andrew Lees. A top priority for Myerson will probably be managing the relationship with Nokia, which plans to launch its first U.S. Windows Phones with T-Mobile in Jan. 2012 and hopes to significantly increase volumes for Windows Phone. That in turn will be key to expanding Microsoft's market share in smartphone platforms, which actually declined after the launch of Windows Phone, according to Gartner estimates for worldwide unit sales in the third quarter of 2011.
Andrew Lees has left his post as president, Windows Phone Division. He retains the title of president and will report directly to Ballmer, working on an unspecified project "to drive maximum impact in 2012 with the company's Windows Phone and Windows 8 efforts."
