Microsoft’s CEO, Satya Nadella, has restructured the company into three main groups, which will see the departure of former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop.
The restructure means the Microsoft Devices Group (MDG) has been absorbed by a new division, resulting in Elop stepping down from his role as head of the group.
Elop first left Microsoft for Nokia back in 2010, but re-joined following the £4.6 billion takeover of Nokia’s devices and services business in 2014.
Now he is departing again.
“When Stephen Elop returned to Microsoft, he oriented MDG to create the best Microsoft experience through its devices, inclusive of hardware, software and services,” said Nadella in an email to staff.
