Head of Windows Phone division shifted to prepare for Windows 8

Head of Windows Phone division shifted to prepare for Windows 8Andy Lees, president of the Windows mobile division at Microsoft since March 2008, is being shifted to part of the Windows 8 division. Lees’s role is still unspecified but the shift came from CEO Steve Balmar’s strategic shuffling of executives.

Terry Myerson, lead of the engineering work for its phone division, become the head of the Windows Phone according to an email sent by Steve Balmar. “As I look at where we are, what we’ve done, and what we must do in the year ahead, I’m making two leadership changes to ensure we build on our momentum. First, I have asked Andy Lees to move to a new role working for me on a time-critical opportunity focused on driving maximum impact in 2012 with Windows Phone and Windows 8. We have tremendous potential with Windows Phone and Windows 8, and this move sets us up to really deliver against that potential.” CEO Balmar said in the email.

Lees has been a been a president at the company since October 2010, but so far the Windows Phone has not become a huge success that the company had hoped for.

Later in Balmar’s email he stated the changes will be effective immediately “Both these changes take place immediately… I want to personally thank Andy for his contributions to the phone team. In the three years Andy has been leading the phone group, we’ve come a long way – we reset our strategy, built a strong team that delivered WP7 and WP7.5 and created critical new partnerships and ecosystem around Windows Phone. That is a ton of progress in a brief period of time, and I’m excited for Terry and team to keep driving forward and for Andy to dig into a new challenge.”
