Reller Lands at Microsoft's Platform and Services Division

Tami Reller, a Great Plains and Microsoft Business Solutions veteran, has a new job as CFO of Microsoft's Platform & Services Division.

She retains her corporate vice president title and reports to Kevin Johnson.

The news went out to employees Thursday in a note from Johnson, who is president of PSD, the group responsible for Microsoft's Windows and tools franchises.

Reller, who came to the company by way of its acquisition of Great Plains Software in 2001, is well liked and respected, especially by the cadre of MBS employees and partners. Many expected her to take on the top job at MBS after Doug Burgum and then Satya Nadella moved on, but that job went instead to Kiril Tatarinov last summer

Reller's direct reports will include Charlie Songhurst, Rik van der Kool, according to Johnson's note.

Reller's thus-far un-updated bio is here.
