Microsoft executive Julie Larson-Green leaving company after 25 years

ZDNet reports that Larson-Green made the announcement in a Facebook post, saying that she is "leaving Microsoft to pursue new adventures in building great teams and customer-first products."

Larson-Green has filled a number of different roles during her 25 years with Microsoft. She previously worked in user interface design for Microsoft's Office apps before heading to the Windows team under Steven Sinofsky.

Once Sinofsky departed in 2012, Larson-Green led Windows engineering before later being tapped to also lead Microsoft's Devices Group. She later became chief experience officer at Microsoft's services group before adding Office to her purview in 2015.

As ZDNet points out, Larson-Green stepped down from her executive role earlier in 2017 following an injury.
