Microsoft CFO Leaving

Longtime Microsoft executive John Connors is leaving the company to join a venture capital firm.

Connors, 45, served the last five years of his 16-year Microsoft career as chief financial officer.

His highest-profile recent challenge was figuring out how Microsoft should spend its $56 billion in cash. A December special dividend of about $32 billion and a four-year, $30 billion stock buyback accounted for that sum and more.

Connors starts with Bellevue, Wash.-based Ignition Partners in April.
