Microsoft Corporation (MSFT) Brad Smith Becomes President And CLO

Its true, Microsoft Corporation  has given its longtime executive Vice President Brad Smith a promotion. Mr. Smith was employed in this position since 2011, and is highly regarded amongst the power brokers in Microsoft.
“Brad has long had a broad role at the company and now I’m asking him to lead more new initiatives,” wrote the company's Chief Executive Satya Nadella in a Friday email to employees. In addition to handling Microsoft’s legal work, Mr. Smith will be responsible for “privacy, security, accessibility, environmental sustainability and digital inclusion.”

The mail confirms Mr. Smith’s appointment to the employees. The move is seen as a step in the right direction, as it is speculated that Mr. Smith got the job due to his brilliant work ethic and his ability to communicate with his employees effectively. He will be dealing with issues regarding privacy, security, and accessibility. The email is also encouraging for Mr. Smith, as he has been established as the head honcho in the eyes of everyone at Microsoft.

Mr. Smith joined the company back in 1993, and has been associated with the company for more than 2 decades. The appointment also makes sense, as he has been associated with the company for a long time and knows the ins and outs of the business. This is also good news for investors who know that they are in the hands of a secure individual, and they can count on him to protect their interests.
Microsoft has to compete with its competitors, as a new generation of tech executives grasp the proverbial “Bull by the horns’. The move is bound to bring speculation as to how Mr. Smith will affect the company’s long term future and projects. Initial signs though suggest that this is a good move and only time will tell if it pays off.
