Microsoft's Julie-Larson Green is now in charge of its Office apps

Julie Larson-Green, who has worked at Microsoft for some years in many different roles, has been named as the new customer engineering leader of the company's Office apps. Larson-Green will also continue to serve as chief experience officer for Microsoft's services group, which includes products like Skype, Bing and OneDrive.

Microsoft stated that Corporate Vice President Kirk Koenigsbauer, who previously was the leader of the company's Office client and services business, will now be the head of marketing for Microsoft's Applications and Services Group.

Larson-Green has a long history at Microsoft. She worked on leading user interface design for the Office apps before moving to the Windows team, under its then leader Steven Sinofsky, and worked on Windows 7 and Windows 8. After Sinofsky departed Microsoft in 2012, just after Windows 8's launch, Larson-Green was named as the leader of Windows engineering. She was later named as the leader of Microsoft's devices division just before her current gig.
