Qi Lu, head of Microsoft’s Applications and Services division (Office, Bing, Skype, etc),¬† is speaking this morning at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference. (A webcast of the Q&A is being streamed¬†here.)

When asked about his impressions of new CEO Satya Nadella, Lu said that he’s had the opportunity to work with Nadella closely in a number of capacities. (We hear he was Nadella’s mentor for a time.)

“I hold very, very high regard for Satya,” Lu said. “Satya has already hit the ground running, driving a lot of focus forward.”

Lu said Nadella was driving clarity, focusing the “devices and services” strategy already in place at Microsoft on “high value services.”
