Reller To Exit Business Solutions After Tatarinov Transition

Tami Reller, once seen as a candidate to head up Microsoft's Business Solutions group, is mulling over what role she will play within the company as she assists Kirill Tatarinov, who took over the group's top post last week.

Some 12,000 partners are in Denver to hear what's new from Microsoft, and so are ChannelWeb reporters. Our ace software team of Stacy Cowley, Rick Whiting and Kevin McLaughlin are all in Denver tuning in to the keynotes and walking the floors.

From Rick Whiting:

Tami Reller, once seen as a candidate to head up Microsoft's Business Solutions group, is mulling over what role she will play within the company as she assists Kirill Tatarinov, who took over the group's top post last week. In an interview at this week's Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, Reller said she will be sticking with Microsoft, but looking for opportunities outside of the Business Solutions organization.

"Steve and Jeff want me to spread my wings a bit," Reller said Wednesday, referring to Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and Microsoft Business Division president Jeff Raikes.

Some saw her as next-in-line to run Business Solutions, which develops Microsoft's Dynamics ERP and CRM applications, when Satya Nadella, who headed up the organization, was named corporate vice president of Microsoft's Search and Advertising Platform group in March. But instead the post went to Tatarinov, who was previously a vice president in Microsoft's Windows Enterprise Management division and was an executive at BMC before joining Microsoft in 2002.

Reller, said to be popular with Dynamics channel partners, came to Microsoft six years ago when the company acquired Great Plains Software, where she was CFO. In a joint interview she and Tatarinov said she will maintain her current post for a few months to assist Tatarinov in his transition before deciding what her next role within the company will be.
