A couple of weeks after Windows Senior Vice President Bill Veghte decided to leave Microsoft, another Windows marketing veteran Mike Nash is doing the same.
Mike Nash, Corporate Vice President of Windows Platform Strategy, will be leaving the company in February. Just a few weeks back, Windows Senior Vice President Bill Veghte had also announced his decision to leave Microsoft.
Nash will be joining Amazon.com to work on the Kindle.
Nash was responsible for pieces of Windows business strategy, ecosystem engagement, consumer security, Internet Explorer, and emerging markets, according to his bio on Microsoft’s Web site.
With Nash’s departure, all of the top Windows marketing leaders who were part of the Windows Business Group created under Veghte three years ago — Mike Sievert, Will Poole, Joe Peterson and Nash — are now gone from the company.
With Windows 8 starting to ramp up and Windows President Steven Sinofsky continuing to surround himself with an inner circle of leaders of his own choosing, the changing of the guards isn’t too surprising.
