Cindy Rose named as Microsoft UK's next CEO, taking the seat in November

Microsoft UK's current CEO, Michel Van der Bel today announced that he will be stepping down from his position at the company. Cindy Rose, who was named as the successor in the announcement, will take to the UK throne on November 1.

Rose was previously at Vodafone before quitting and was acting commander of launching new consumer products, inlcuding a TV service the carrier was interested in bringing to market.

As covered by MSPU, there really isn't much else to go on regarding Rose's upcoming position at Microsoft UK. We'll have to hold out to see what she will bring to the company from past experiences within the telecoms industry.
