Pavan Davuluri IIT'ian To Head Microsoft Windows

Pavan Davuluri IIT'ian To Head Microsoft Windows

Pavan Davuluri, an IIT Madras alumnus, has been appointed as the new head of Microsoft Windows and Surface, marking another instance of an Indian professional assuming a leadership position at a major technology company, similar to Google's Sundar Pichai and Microsoft's Satya Nadella. Davuluri succeeds Panos Panay, who transitioned to Amazon last year. Previously, Davuluri oversaw the Surface group while Mikhail Parakhin led the Windows department. Following the departures of Parakhin and Panay, Davuluri now heads both Windows and Surface departments.

In an internal memo accessed by The Verge, Rajesh Jha, Microsoft's head of experiences and devices, detailed the organizational changes. He highlighted the consolidation of the Windows Experiences and Windows + Devices teams within the Experiences + Devices (E+D) division to facilitate a comprehensive approach in developing devices and experiences for the AI era. Davuluri, reporting to Jha, leads this integrated team, with Shilpa Ranganathan and Jeff Johnson reporting directly to him. The Windows team continues close collaboration with Microsoft AI on AI initiatives, silicon development, and user experiences.

With over 23 years of experience at Microsoft, Davuluri played a pivotal role in collaborations with Qualcomm and AMD to develop processors for Surface devices. The memo also expressed enthusiasm for the team's contributions to Microsoft AI's consumer products and the forthcoming integration of AI offerings like Copilot across E+D products and services.

This reorganization coincides with Mustafa Suleyman, co-founder of Google DeepMind and former Inflection AI CEO, joining Microsoft as the CEO of its new AI team, emphasizing Microsoft's strategic focus on AI advancements.
