Xbox's Mike Ybarra and Kareem Choudhry have been promoted to VPs at Microsoft
Congratulations are in order for Xbox's Mike Ybarra and Kareem Choudhry, as both receive Vice President positions in the company.
Sources familiar with Microsoft's plans have told us that Mike Ybarra and Kareem Choudhry are both set to become Corporate Vice Presidents at Microsoft, formalizing their roles as permanent fixtures for Xbox. Mike Ybarra is the Head of Program Management for Xbox's core, with Kareem Choudhry heading up development at Xbox software engineering, reporting to Xbox head Phil Spencer.
You might recognize Kareem Choudhry from the end of the Project Scorpio trailer, where he delivers the famous strapline "It's a monster." Choudhry was formerly head of Kinect development until the peripheral became unbundled with the console, at which point he moved to oversee all Xbox development.
