With the departure of Windows Live President Steven Sinofsky earlier this month, Julie Larson-Green landed the lead role of Windows software and hardware engineering. She holds two degrees: a master's in software engineering from Seattle University and a bachelor's degree in business administration from Western Washington University.

She's put her software engineering skills to good use during her 20-year tenure at Microsoft, starting off as a program manager for Visual C++.

For Windows 7 and Windows 8, she was responsible for program management, UI design and research, and development for international releases.
