Stephen Elop leaving Microsoft...again
posted by Alan F. / Jun 17, 2015, 11:17 AM
But Elop's second tour at Redmond is over. Microsoft announced this morning that it is making changes to its Senior Leadership Team which means that the executive vice president of Microsoft's Devices Group is once again departing. Elop, Kirill Tatarinov and Eric Rudder are leaving because of the shakeup, and Chief Insights Officer Mark Penn is leaving to start a private equity fund.
Terry Myerson, currently Executive VP, will head a new Windows Devices Group focused on the Windows PC experience. Elop and the other executives will leave following a transition period. The former Nokia CEO was beaten out for the same position at Microsoft by Satya Nadella, although there is no reason to expect that this had anything to do with his upcoming departure from the company.
Horay! The stupid CEO is gone. Hooray!

Heh, guess the "Burning Platform" is burning you now. You killed our beloved Nokia. So long Elop. I wish you die every second... You are the most nasty person in this world

Microsoft wants to use Elop as the fall guy to make it look like Microsoft is the good guy in the public's eye again. Never forget that Elop was under the thumbs of Microsoft in the first place. Besides Microsoft already paid Elop millions when Nokia was sold to Microsoft. Not to mention he headed up the Mobile division at Microsoft when he came back.

Sure you can. Anyone beheading people on video for religion, for instance. Child rapists. Mass murderers. Painful, slow death to all of them. Now, Eflop - I wish he could wind up broke and desperate like all the people he put out of work with his incompetence, rather than richly rewarded like it turned out.

Elop didnt kill Nokia. Nokia was already dying. Symbian was progressing to slow and they didnt adopt anything to to take on Android. What they should have did was use Android as it was a very nice upgrade from Symbian. They're own stupidity ran them into the ground.

I doubt Apple would ever hire a s**tty CEO who ruined one of the best mobile phone companies just cause he didnt wanna go the android way.

I wonder which company would hire this 'Trojan Horse'. I seriously doubt that any company would hire him for the outcome he gave to Nokia as a CEO.

meh Nokia hired him, no one forced them to hire him. In fact before Elop, did you know 2 other people turned down Nokia's CEO position because they felt it was a dead end endeavor...

Nope Nokia is still there. And not going with WP where would they be? Only a time machine could tell that. One thing was sure. You don't shop for a new CEO and have TWO CEO candidates turn the offer down if the ship is the best. Also they could have sold before Elop and gotten even more money. So your corruption idea holds zero value.

Except the board didn't want either of those CEO's dude. They were already wooed by Microsh!t. You keep thinking that EFlop and Microsh!t had Nokia's best interest if you want. And I've also go a bridge in Brooklyn and a tower in France to sell you.

Useless Salesman who downgraded Nokia just to Help is Struggling Microsoft Team,Febuary 11th will always haunt Mr Elop after announcing "SYMBIAN IS DEAD",Meego N9 just showed how bad Mr Elop was at Nokia by Refusing the N9 to be Sold Globally after being so scared of the N9 becoming more popular than Windows,Windows as never been right for Nokia,Hope they come back with Android soon

But (SPOILER!!!) that would mean Elop is Jon Snow...? He kind of is like Jon Snow in a way: he made a decision ostensibly for the survival of his company (bringing the Free Folk south of the Wall vs. bringing Nokia to MS) while paying little heed to those who protested (the Night's Watch hating Jon for it vs. Nokia fanboys hating Elop for it.)
