Microsoft EVP Peggy Johnson Talks Acquisitions and the Future (Video)

Full video of Johnson's conversation about startups, Silicon Valley, the tech bubble and more.


This week, Peggy Johnson stopped by to talk with Re/code Executive Editor Kara Swisher on the “Re/code Decode” podcast.

In a wide-ranging discussion, Johnson touched on why she left Qualcomm after a two-decade-plus run there, Microsoft’s recent string of high-profile acquisitions and CEO Satya Nadella’s vision for the future. Johnson says Microsoft is working to be “Silicon Valley’s best friend,” a large tech company that can provide everything from office software to cloud-computing services.
