She succeeds Peter Klein, who resigned to spend time with his family.

Amy Hood’s Record Of Success

Amy Hood, prior to being appointed as CFO served as the Chief of business division of Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ:MSFT) and was responsible for many strategic decisions during her tenure. She played a major role in takeover of companies like Skype Technologies by Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ:MSFT) and also prides the addition of new product areas to the company’s lines such as corporate telephony and collaboration software.

The business division of Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ:MSFT) had always managed to register a sustainable track record in various acquisitions with sales in the division increasing by 24 percent. Such gains in the business division had compensated for the weaknesses in Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s spreadsheet and word processing applications due to slacking growth in PC sales.

She is well known for her attraction to cloud which makes her an effective choice to the position. Hood began her career at Microsoft Corp.
