Guthrie To Replace Nadella as Microsoft Cloud and Enterprise Group Head

Microsoft has tapped Corporate Vice President Scott Guthrie to replace Satya Nadella as the head of Microsoft's Cloud and Enterprise group.

Nadella vacated his previous position on Tuesday after being officially named Microsoft's next CEO. Guthrie will report directly to Nadella, according to a report by ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley.

Microsoft gave an internal announcement of Guthrie's appointment to the Cloud and Enterprise group on Tuesday, a Microsoft spokesperson told Foley.

Officially, he is the "interim" executive vice president of Cloud and Enterprise Engineering, though he will likely be promoted to the position permanently, Foley said.

Guthrie is a well-known figure in Microsoft's developer and cloud circles. He served as corporate vice president of the company's .NET platform before being picked to lead the Windows Azure Application Platform team in 2011. He's worked on multiple Microsoft products, according to his blog, including Visual Studio, BizTalk Server and Entity Framework.
