Executive Vice President at Microsoft
Terry Myerson is executive vice president of the Windows and Devices Group (WDG) at Microsoft. Myerson is responsible for the software platform, apps, games, store and devices that power the Windows ecosystem. This includes Microsoft Edge, Minecraft, Halo, Surface, HoloLens, Lumia and Xbox.
Previous to WDG, Myerson led the Operating Systems Group responsible for Windows 10, the next generation of Windows that brings Windows to life across a broad family of devices from those with 4” screens to 10’ screens to no screens at all. Previously, he lead the Windows Phone team (which won multiple industry awards for design, innovation and customer satisfaction with its launch in 2010) and the Exchange team (during which time it became the world’s most popular business communications system).
After earning a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Duke University, Myerson founded Intersé, one of the first Web software companies. He lives in Washington with his wife, three children and their golden retriever.
