Microsoft fires its CIO

By on

Microsoft has fired the Chief Information Officer, Stuart Scott, on Friday after two years with the company; saying he violated company policies.

“We can confirm that Stuart Scott was terminated after an investigation for violation of company policies,” a Microsoft representative said.

General Manager Shahla Aly and Corporate Vice President Alain Crozier will be taking over the role until a replacement can be found. It declined to comment further on the termination of Scott’s position with Microsoft, nor specified on what company policy or policies did he violate.

Stuart Scott joined Microsoft from General Electric (GE) in 2005 after serving 17 years with GE. He was named as one of the top 100 Chief Information Officers by CIO Magazine.
