Ted Johnson is back at Microsoft and is working on the IE team. Johnson quietly rejoined Microsoft in August 2008 and had been keeping a low public profile in the ensuing months. Johnson said he was looking for a new job and called Microsoft Windows President Steven Sinofsky, who put him in touch with the IE team. On the IE team, he is now Product Manager (PM) Architect for graphics and rendering on IE. “Johnson was a CVP at Microsoft between Jan 2000 and Sep 2003. As part of Server and Tools Business, he oversaw Microsoft Project, Visio, Publisher, and MapPoint. Johnson joined Microsoft following the Redmondians’ acquisition of Visio, the company Johnson cofounded with Jeremy Jaech and Dave Walter in the fall of 1990 for $1.3 billion. Johnson left Microsoft in 2003 to cofound Trumba Corp., a Seattle-based developer of online calendaring software/services. Johnson was Vice President of Products there when he left in 2008.
