Microsoft names Jim DuBois as new chief information officer

While Microsoft won't be announcing a new chief executive officer until sometime in early 2014, it has gone ahead and named a new corporate vice-president and chief information officer. Late on Friday, the company revealed that Jim DuBois will take over in that role on January 1st, having served as its interim CIO for the past six months.

Microsoft's press release quotes its chief operating office Kevin Truner as saying:

Jim has demonstrated outstanding leadership in managing our IT organization through the transition period while continuing to position IT as a strategic asset and growth lever for Microsoft. I am confident that, as CIO, he will continue to deliver world-class IT infrastructure and innovation for Microsoft

DuBois has worked at the company for over 20 years, including terms as its general manager of IT and vice president of Microsoft Products and Services IT. He definitely seems to be the natural choice to be the new CIO and will be in charge of all of Microsoft's internal IT activities. The job was previously held by Tony Scott who left Microsoft earlier this year to take on the same role at VMWare.

I respect the man for his position...but with the kind of money he makes, couldn't he at least fix the yellow teeth...

or at least Photoshop the official portrait. I know it sounds petty that we are nitpicking trivial stuff but jeez this is your official portrait it doesn't have to be accurate just a representation.

it may come as surprise to some, but having perfectly white teeth is unnatural and not normal, perfectly white teeth are not needed for perfectly health teeth, they are made of bone and should have an off white colour, only the people who seem to take vanity and the message from the photoshopped celebrity class media seem to be bothered by off white teeth, i personally find brilliantly white teeth very ugly and a sign that you feel the need to conform to some made up ideal.

I think you're an anomaly.
