Microsoft Corp said former Nokia Oyj top boss, Stephen Elop, is leaving the software maker as part of a shakeup in its senior leadership.

Elop, once considered a successor to former Microsoft Chief Executive Steve Ballmer, joined the company to run its devices business after Microsoft bought Nokia in 2013.

Elop was hired as Nokia CEO in 2010 from Microsoft, where he ran the business software division.
