Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, left, is trying to "get the entire company working together in an effort to build a homogenous solution that crosses all areas: services on the back end, hardware on the front end, and Microsoft at both ends and in between," said analyst Rob Enderle. "That means all the heads have to cooperate and work together."

On the Windows 7 and Windows 8 front, Larson-Green was responsible for program management, user interface design and research, and development of all international releases. She has a master's degree in software engineering from Seattle University and a bachelor's degree in business administration from Western Washington University. In her new role she will be responsible for all future Windows product development in addition to future hardware opportunities.

"Leading Windows engineering is an incredible challenge and opportunity," Ballmer said, "and as I looked at the technical and business skills required to continue our Windows trajectory -- great communication skills, a proven ability to work across product groups, strong design, deep technical expertise, and a history of anticipating and meeting customer needs -- it was clear to me that Julie is the best possible person for this job, and I'm excited to have her in this role."

Reller joined Windows in 2007 from the Microsoft Dynamics division, where she held a number of leadership positions. She began her career in technology at Great Plains Software in 1984 while still in college, and was the company's CFO when Microsoft acquired the firm in 2001.

Reller has a bachelor's degree in mathematics from Minnesota State University at Moorhead and an MBA from St. Mary's College in Moraga, Calif. In her expanded role she will assume the lead in driving business and marketing strategy for Windows devices, including Surface and partner devices, in addition to her current marketing and finance responsibilities.
