image thumb140 Microsoft waves goodbye to Chris Stephenson a couple of weeks before the Zune launch

There is the new Zune coming in September but Chris Stephenson can’t wait that long and has left Microsoft. He had been in charge of its global marketing for the music player. He will be joining Universal Music and will be leading the marketing for Interscope Geffen A&M Records. Microsoft had been doing quite well with Stephenson on board the Zune team and his departure just a couple of weeks before the release is quite surprising to say the least.
