New role for Andy Lees at Microsoft

AndyLees.jpgFormer Windows head Steven Sinofsky’s exit wasn’t the only high-level executive shuffling going on at Microsoft.

Andy Lees, who for the past year had been a president of Microsoft reporting to CEO Steve Ballmer and responsible for “driving maximum impact in 2012 with the company’s Windows Phone and Windows 8 efforts” is now a corporate vice president working on corporate development and strategy and reporting to CFO Peter Klein, according to the company.

The change took place in early October when it was announced internally, according to Microsoft.

The move was noticed by Bloomberg reporter Dina Bass.

Lees had been president of the Windows Phone division when Ballmer moved him from that position in December 2011.
