Julie Larson-Green gets new job at Microsoft so that Stephen Elop can slide right into her old one
With Stephen Elop on his way back to Microsoft to be executive vice president of devices, the person with that exact title on her business card is moving to a new position. Julie Larson-Green will become chief experience officer for products at Microsoft, with those products including Skype, Bing and Office to name a few. Her new boss is Qi Lu, the executive vice president who leads the Applications and Services group at Microsoft.

The move by Larson-Green isn't the only reason to expect the Microsoft-Nokia deal to close soon. The Finnish based company has started reporting financial results for Devices and Services separately from the rest of the company. And the HERE team, which is not part of the deal, has already moved to a different campus along with its Chief Technical Officer. The $7.2 billion deal (sounds like small chump change compared to the $19 billion Facebook acquisition of WhatsApp) is expected to close this quarter.

Meanwhile, Larson-Green sent out an internal email inside Microsoft which does make some reference to other emails from new Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and Qi Lui. You can read her email below.
