Julie Larson Green Confirmed as New Xbox Boss


Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has announced a major organisational shake-up at the company, confirming former Windows boss Julie Larson-Green as the new head of Xbox hardware.

Writing a memo to all Microsoft staff, Ballmer speaks of his vision for “One Microsoft” will enable the company to operate at “greater speed, efficiency and capability in a fast changing world.”

Larson-Green, a 19-year veteran of the company, will now lead Microsoft’s Devices and Studios Engineering Group, and will look after all of Microsoft’s hardware development–including the Xbox brand.

As the head of Microsoft’s Windows division, Larson-Green oversaw the launches of Windows 8 and Windows 7. She also led the visual redesign introduced in Microsoft Office 2007.
