Microsoft reportedly hires Qualcomm's top executive


Microsoft is undergoing a lot of change ever since the company came under the leadership of Satya Nadella. According to a new report, Peggy Johnson, a top Qualcomm executive, is leaving to take a high-level job at the software giant. 

Currently, she's the executive vice president and head of global market development at Qualcomm, which mainly involves overseeing the company's marketing decisions. Johnson joined the company as an engineer in its wireless unit, and was later promoted to the position of vice president for the unit. 

Both companies declined to confirm whether Johnson is really leaving Qualcomm for Microsoft or not. We'll update you as soon as any official news comes up regarding the new recruit.
