Microsoft veteran Julie Larson-Green is leaving after almost 25 years at the company, according to Bloomberg.
Larson-Green held 10 positions during her time at the Redmond-headquartered company, according to her LinkedIn profile. Some of her most recent and most senior positions include chief experience officer for Office and VP of Windows.
She has reportedly been on leave since May to recover from a spinal cord surgery. Now she’s leaving for good to pursue new opportunities, according to Bloomberg.
Her LinkedIn summary reads:
“I am passionate about building technology that gets out of the way so you can focus on what matters most. My mantra ‘people first, technology second’ has been the driving force in my career. My focus has been leading teams and incubating new technologies and experiences to re-imagine the platform for intelligent work. In my career, I’ve helped build products, including Office, Windows, Internet Explorer, Xbox and Surface, that touch more than a billion people every day. As a leader, it’s important that my door always be open – to embrace everyone’s individual perspective, personality, style and abilities to makes my teams stronger – and creating a culture that the best ideas can come from anyone and anywhere.”
A Microsoft spokesperson said: “We thank Julie for the numerous contributions she’s made to Microsoft over the last 25 years, and we wish her the very best in her new endeavors.”
