Microsoft has a few openings in its mergers and acquisitions unit, thanks to the departure of a pair of executives. Amid a comparatively modest period of acquisition activity for the software giant, Fritz Lanman and Charles Songhurst have reportedly jumped ship.
What could have caused their departure? And is that a sign of trouble for Microsoft? Perhaps not, according to one industry analyst, who points out that Microsoft has been in a relatively low-key acquisition mode of late. Datamation has the story.
Two senior executives involved in Microsoft’s mergers and acquisitions are saying goodbye to the software giant, according to published reports.
However, one knowledgeable analyst said he views the departures from Microsoft’s (NASDAQ: MSFT) acquisitions group as part of a natural business cycle, rather than a major strategic shift for the software giant.
