Microsoft’s chief financial officer, Peter Klein is responsible for leading Microsoft Corp.’s worldwide finance organization which includes overseeing acquisitions, corporate strategy, treasury activities, tax planning, accounting and reporting, internal audit and investor relations.
Here’s an interesting quote about Microsoft’s approach to evaluating the Windows 8 Consumer Preview:
Bellini asked about what measures Microsoft will be looking at in gauging the success of the Windows 8 Consumer Preview — the public beta version of Windows 8 — that is scheduled for release Feb. 29. Klein said the company would be looking at quantitative and qualitative feedback, including responses from developers and “influentials.” There will be “a ton of listening signals that we’ll get” and the company will triangulate those, he said.
Good to know that Microsoft will be paying attention to feedback.
Exactly how responsive they will be is (at this point) anyone’s guess but I’m 100% sure that there will be lots of feedback for the company…
