Microsoft on Monday named Scott Guthrie as the permanent head for Microsoft's enterprise group, a position he has held in an acting capacity.

The position became vacant after its previous occupant — Satya Nadella — was tapped as CEO.

Microsoft also appointed Phil Spencer to take on a new role leading the Xbox team,replacing Marc Whitten and reporting to Terry Myerson. As previously announced, Stephen Elop will lead Microsoft's expanded devices team when the Nokia deal closes sometime in April.
