Windows division CFO Tami Reller and Office division CFO Amy Hood are Microsoft's (MSFT -0.9%) top candidates to replace outgoing CFO Peter Klein, two sources tell Bloomberg. Online Services COO Rik van der Kooi is also said to be a candidate. One source says a replacement, who would be tasked with overseeing Microsoft's $74.5B cash/investment balance and dividend/buyback policies, could be named as soon as next week. Earlier this week, Reller affirmed Microsoft's commitment to Windows 8, while promising UI tweaks to make the OS more palatable to new users.
