Microsoft leadership changes: Scott Guthrie to head cloud division

New Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has promoted Scott Guthrie to executive vice president of its Cloud and Enterprise division.

Guthrie has been ‘acting’ leader of the division for the last two months after Nadella left the role to become CEO.

In an e-mail to Microsoft employees, Nadella also announced that Phil Spencer will be replacing Marc Whitten as head of the Xbox team.

He will be reporting to Terry Myerson who is executive vice president of the Operating Systems group.

Spencer will continue to work with Yusuf Mehdi, who leads business strategy and marketing for Xbox, George Peckham, who heads up third-party partnerships and Mike Angiulo, who will continue leading Xbox hardware.

As expected, once the Nokia acquisition closes, Stephen Elop will rejoin the company as executive vice president of the Devices group, reporting to Nadella.

The acquisition is expected to close at the end of April.
