Microsoft reorgs business solutions

We’ve been waiting for shoes to drop over at Microsoft Business Solutions (MBS)—it’s been very quiet. Well, they’re dropping now.

Chris Caren has been named to lead MBS marketing, coming over from Office Business Applications. His direct reports are: Mogens Elsberg (ERP product management and marketing); Brad Wilson (CRM product and marketing); Kim Carnesale (cross-brand Dynamics marketing); Gayle Hoshino (pricing and services product management and marketing); and Paul Prokop (small biz marketing).

MBS vet Tami Reller had done across-the-group marketing but became CFO of the  Windows Platform & Services Group in December.

Terry Petrzelka, CEO of Tectura, a big MBS partner, took the news in stride: “Mogens, Brad, all those people used to report to Tami so this makes sense.:

Hal Howard gets responsibility for all ERP research and development. Darren Laybourn is moving to a new, as-yet-undisclosed Microsoft gig, according to e-mail from an MBS spokeswoman. Dan Brown will now head Dynamics NAV and Mobility teams.
