Microsoft Names Nadella To Head New Search And Ad Platform Group

Satya Nadella, who headlined just last week at Convergence 2007 in his role of corporate vice president of Microsoft Business Solutions, will now take the lead on the company's newly formed Search and Ad Platform Group.

Tami Reller, a long time Great Plains vet and current corporate vice president of MBS, will be acting leader of the Microsoft Dynamics group, reporting directly to Jeff Raikes, president of the Microsoft Business Division. Nadella should transition into his new role by April 19, the company said. The move is bound to raise eyebrows among MBS watchers because Nadella was named to his MBS role just six months ago after a prolonged and public executive search. Doug Burgum, the senior vice president of MBS, is leaving at the end of the fiscal year in June.

"We knew of his plans for awhile and thought about the right way to take the investments we've made to a new level in search and commerce. Certainly, Christopher's career decision was a catalyst," Jeff Raikes, president of the Microsoft Business Division, told CRN in an interview Wednesday afternoon.

As to why the change in Nadella's status was not announced last week to thousands of MBS partners and customers gathered in San Diego, Reller said all the pieces were not in place at that time.

The Microsoft Business Division "has an incredibly strong bench both in breadth and depth," Reller said. "We absolutely will miss Satya, but as a leadership team, we feel very good about the strategy and roadmap."
