Microsoft Office Marketing Chief Resigns

Just weeks after launching Office 2003, VP Joe Eschbach is moving on to "pursue other interests." Veteran Chris Capossela is moving into his spot.

A high-profile member of Microsofts information-worker business unit is stepping down, about a year after being recruited to Microsoft by Group VP Jeff Raikes.

Joe Eschbach, Microsofts corporate VP of the Information Worker Product Management Group, resigned from the company in November, according to the companys Web site. A Microsoft spokeswoman said that Eschbachs last day is December 1, and that he is leaving "to pursue other opportunities."

Twelve-year Microsoft veteran, Chris Capossela, is taking Eschbachs place. Most recently, Capossela has served as general manager of Microsofts Project business. Capossela is remembered by many as the guy who "blue screened" one of Chairman Bill Gates" Comdex Windows demonstrations — but survived to joke about it.
