We have a PUM. Paramesh Vaidyanathan who ran the India Developer Center for Developer Division – a team of something like 100 people – has decided he wants to come back to the US to run the Non-Professional Tools Team (NPT – our team).

I’m incredibly excited. I’ve worked with Paramesh before as his marketing team for Visual J#, Visual Studio Tools for Devices, and even for things like the Object Test Bench. He’s an incredibly nice person and pretty on the ball (I mean, for management ;-).

I still have a couple of months to play before management arrives – he starts September 1st – but I’m very happy to have a full time manager.

Boy, I never thought I’d say that.
