Two top Microsoft executives, one of whom was a contender for the company’s top job, are parting ways with the software and services giant according to a report by Re/Code.
The departure of Tony Bates, EVP of business development and evangelism and former Skype CEO, and EVP of marketing Tami Reller, is set to be announced on Tuesday but Microsoft employees were briefed on the matter on Friday by Nadella.
According to Re/Code’s report, Eric Rudder, executive vice president of advanced strategy, will take over Bates’ former duties, while Chris Capossela, one of the company’s marketing executives, will be replacing Reller.
