    Microsoft to combine its Windows client and hardware teams under Chief Product Officer Panos Panay

    Posted: 05 Feb 2020


    The first couple of months of each year, Microsoft typically reorgs something. This time around, it's the Experiences and Devices unit under Executive Vice President Rajesh Jha where a lot of the changes are happening.

    The biggest and boldest move in the Feb. 5 reorg being announced internally today involves the Windows Experience (client) and the hardware teams. Microsoft is going to roll up these two businesses into a single team, known as Windows and Devices -- reporting to Chief Product Officer Panos Panay, I've confirmed with a person familiar with the changes who asked not to be named. The move takes effect on Feb. 25.

    Corporate Vice President Joe Belfiore, who currently heads the Windows Experience business under Jha, is going to move over to the Office side of the house. Belfiore and Ales Holecek will be leading the Office Experience Group (OXO) team as a product/engineering team. Belfiore will continue to lead EPIC (Essential Products Inclusive Community), which includes the mobile apps on Android and iOS and Microsoft News.

    Today's changes do not affect Microsoft's COSINE (Core OS and Intelligent Edge) team, which will continue to be part of the Azure Engineering organization under Executive Vice President Jason Zander. Nor do they change the strategic priorities of Jha's Experiences and Devices unit.
