Microsoft Simon Witts.jpgSimon Witts, Microsoft’s corporate vice president for its Enterprise & Partner Group, is leaving after 18 years, the company said today.

The decision to leave was mutual, according to Matt Rosoff of Business Insider in a tweet on his Twitter feed.

The departure was announced in an internal email from Chief Operating Officer Kevin Turner this morning, said Rosoff, who added that Microsoft is seeking a replacement internally and externally. In the meantime, Susan Hauser will be in charge of enterprise sales and partner relations.

Witts came to Microsoft from IBM in 1993 and has overseen sales and marketing in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region, according to Microsoft. He served as president of Microsoft Canada and held various management positions within the U.K. subsidiary.
