Panos Panay introduced the Surface Laptop 5 at the 2022 Surface event, so naturally, we were expecting Microsoft’s Chief Product Officer to present the next-generation of laptops and tablets on Thursday. “What’s on Thursday?” you ask. The 2023 Surface event. But this time, Panay will not be in attendance.
On Sept. 18, Panos Panay shook up the tech landscape after tweeting about his departure from Microsoft. “I’m forever grateful for my time at Microsoft and the amazing people I had the honor to make products with,” Panay said.
