Last week TechFlash reported a change in the leadership of the Windows Home Server team. Microsoft remains committed to Windows Home Server and is pleased to announce that the team will be led by Kevin Kean, General Manager.
Charlie Kindel, the previous General Manager, was asked to join Microsoft’s Mobile Communications business based on his success leading Windows Home Server efforts and his engineering expertise. Charlie’s transition is a business decision to help increase engineering excellence in the Mobile Communications Division.
Charlie Kindel was responsible for bringing Windows Home Server to life; from the initial concept to putting the product in consumer homes. In a recent email to the team, Charlie shared his sentiments. “It is with very strong emotions that I pass the torch of Windows Home Server to new leadership. My passion for both the concept of the home server and our products will never diminish. Together, we have firmly established my long term vision for a broad Microsoft consumer platform.”
The Windows Home Server team would like to express our deep gratitude to Charlie and wish him the best in his new endeavor.
