Microsoft officially announces Mattrick promotion

Former EA man formally takes over as Robbie Bach retires

Microsoft has officially announced the promotion of Don Mattrick to president of the Interactive Entertainment division, following the retirement of previous incumbent Robbie Bach.

The news came amid two other role changes across the wider company, although it was merely a formality, as Mattrick has been reporting directly to CEO Steve Ballmer for several months already.

"Today's promotions underscore the strength of Microsoft's collective leadership team and set us up well to execute against a powerful lineup of products this fall," said Ballmer. "Not only is the team ready to capitalize on major momentum with our existing products like Office, SharePoint and Halo: Reach, but they are simultaneously bringing entirely new experiences to market with Windows Phone 7 and Kinect for Xbox 360."

Kurt DelBene was also announced as president of the Microsoft Office division, while Andy Lees was named president of the Mobile Communications business.
