“The head of Microsoft Corp.’s online business who led the company’s bid to buy Yahoo Inc. is leaving the software giant to run Juniper Networks, Inc., according to people familiar with the situation. The departure of Kevin Johnson, president of Microsoft’s Platforms and Services Division, will be combined with a re-organization of Mr. Johnson’s business unit, which houses both the online services business and Windows software for personal computers.

“Under the plan, Mr. Johnson’s group — Microsoft’s largest by headcount — will be split into two parts, one overseeing the Windows operating system and related Windows Live online serve and a second, which will oversee Microsoft’s online services, which include the company’s Internet search, online advertising and MSN services, said people familiar with the situation.”
