Terry Myerson spent a total of 21 years at Microsoft before leaving his position as the company's Windows chief earlier this year. Now, the former Microsoft exec is making a jump from tech chief to venture capital and investment guru with two firms: Madrona and Carlyle Group.
Myerson has been quiet since his departure from Microsoft, but he provided an update on his next moves (opens in new tab) with a detailed LinkedIn post today. At Madrona, Myerson says he'll join Madrona as a Venture Partner and Carlyle Group as an Operating Executive. From Myerson:
Myerson departed Microsoft's Windows & Devices group amid a major shakeup of the company's internal teams and groups. In his place, Rajesh Jha stepped up to lead the new Experience & Devices team, which was built to bring a more cohesive experience across Windows, Office, and third-party applications and devices to create a "more cohesive Microsoft 365 experience," Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella explained at the time.
