Microsoft appoints Amy Hood as first-ever woman CFO

The Economic Times reported that Microsoft Corp. has appointed Amy Hood as the Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Prior to that, Hood was the head of finance of the company’s Office division. She is the first woman to hold the CFO post at Microsoft.

Before joining Microsoft, Hood worked with the investment banking firm, Goldman Sachs. Hood has worked on Microsoft’s high profile acquisitions, such as Skype and Yammer. Many had tipped the much-senior Tami Reller, who is the CFO of Microsoft’s flagship Windows unit, for the job position.
