Microsoft Adds Phil Spencer to its Senior Leadership Team


In some unexpected yet exciting news today from Redmond, it was announced that Phil Spencer, better known to gamers as the Head of Xbox, was promoted to Microsoft’s Senior Leadership Team. He now carries the title of Executive Vice President and joins an elite group of 16 (including Nadella himself). This is significant not only for Xbox, but gaming itself, as it signals one of the largest companies in the world recognizing the importance of the industry.
