For those who like twists, this is one of the mouth-watering stories. After all, none other than the former boss of Microsoft Outlook is now running the Google G Suite business. Of course, as we all know, it all comes down to business… Javier Soltero, who joined Microsoft as part of the company's acquisition of Acompli in 2014, was responsible for a number of major updates in Microsoft Outlook.
On his journey there, Soltero led Microsoft Cortana's personal assistant in 2018 as corporate vice president. Which is not something anyone can do, as it is very significant work. However, he did not take long in office, he left Microsoft in late 2018.
Anyway, after being free of strings attached, so to speak, Soltero was targeted by Microsoft's rival. Soltero has now joined Microsoft's biggest competitor in the industry, leading Google's G Suite. Once again in a good position, but this time we'll see how much time he will spend…
“Some news in the business… I joined Google to lead the G Suite team! The opportunity to work with this team on products that have such a profound impact on the lives of people around the world is a real and rare privilege. I'm excited to get to work. ”That's what Soltero announced.
Soltero, the new vice president of G Suite at Google, will manage the G Suite consumer and business, reporting directly to Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian, according to Axios.
But anyway, what we do know is that it was a big turnaround. But the business world is full of these things. Whether it's employee swaps, rival and partner company purchases, bankruptcies, lightning successes, etc. We can only see and hear the news, after all, are always interesting.
