So it looks like Pieter Knook, SVP of Microsoft's Mobile Communications Business, is out, according to the WSJ. We're not entirely sure why he's retiring (when we met him last year he seemed sprightly enough), but he'll be replaced by Andrew Lees, VP of Server & Tools Marketing and Solutions Group, a man that's spent the last decade on MSDN and TechNet stuff. So, you know, the guy clearly knows the mobile space inside and out. The move comes just in time, too -- what Windows Mobile really needs right now is somebody to come in and make it more business-centric.
