“Tony Scott decided to depart Microsoft to focus on personal projects,” Microsoft said in a statement to GeekWire. “While at Microsoft, Tony was a strong IT leader passionate about taking Microsoft’s technology to the next level and using our experiences and learnings to help customers and partners.”
