Microsoft Moves Muglia to Server Division
CEO Steve Ballmer will directlyb oversee mobile and wireless division.Microsoft Corp. is moving its top Internet and wireless executive to its server software group, leaving the mobility group directly in the hands of CEO Steve Ballmer. Bob Muglia, who had been group vice president in charge of Internet ventures including .Net, will become senior vice president for the server division, said officials at the Redmond, Wash., company, who insist the move is lateral and not downward.
"A group vice president is in charge of a number of different product groups," said Microsoft spokesman Jim Bak. "Now that his focus is one specific area, his title needs to reflect that. Its not a demotion, per se."
