Executive Vice President of Gaming
For many, Phil Spencer’s role at Microsoft is the dream job. He is the executive vice president of gaming, which means he heads up Xbox, Xbox Live, and Microsoft Studios and reports directly to CEO Satya Nadella. He started at Microsoft as an intern in 1988 and has seen the company through many divisions that are now historical artifacts. He launched the industry-shaking Game Pass service that pleased consumers and has proved to be financially viable. This year Bethesda games joined Microsoft, bringing the wildly popular Skyrim series under his purview.
