Industry Moves: Microsoft Appoints New Head of Zune Unit
Microsoft (NSDQ: MSFT) veteran Rick Thompson will become Zune VP, responsible for overseeing the business operations of the Zune unit, reports BW, after Microsoft’s Entertainment & Devices Div. President Robbie Bach sent an e-mail on Oct. 4 notifying staff of this. Thompson will report to J Allard...he worked with Allard on the original Xbox business. Several of the early Xbox cohorts are already on the Zune team, the story says and quotes Allard: “We’re getting the gang back together.” Allard had been responsible for Zune after Bryan Lee left earlier this year. This comes a day after MSFT relaunched Zune.
