Another Softie Retires

Redmond magazine's back-page columnist Mary Jo Foley reports at her own site that Microsoft veteran Sanjay Parthasarathy is retiring.

Parthasarathy hustled up the corporate ladder and leaped big into a corporate vice presidency back in mid-2005, when he reported to Kevin Johnson as the head of Developer & Platform Evangelism. Foley's report says his role as Microsoft Startup Business Accelerator honcho will now be headed by another CVP, Amit Mital, from the Unlimited Potential Group.

"So, who cares?" you might be asking yourself. I do; it's one less tongue-twister to mangle in the weekly Redmond Radio podcast.
