Microsoft CIO, Tony Scott, has left the company

His departure leaked this weekend online

Microsoft CIO Tony Scott has left the company after five years.

Word of his departure leaked out over the weekend. His LinkedIn profile lists him as the company's former CIO and the company website no longer lists him among senior leaders.

The Seattle tech news site GeekWire broke the story on Sunday and also received confirmation from Microsoft in a statement the site quoted as saying: Tony Scott decided to depart Microsoft to focus on personal projects. While at Microsoft, Tony was a strong IT leader passionate about taking Microsofts technology to the next level and using our experiences and learnings to help customers and partners. We thank Tony for his contributions and wish him well.

Jim Dubois, the company's vice president of IT product and services management, has been named interim CIO, GeekWire reported.

Word that Scott had left the company was given to employees last week, the site reported.

Microsoft's public relations agency did not immediately respond to a request for the statement.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
