“GoPro represents everything that excites me in a company — incredible products, compelling content, a world-renowned brand and above all, amazing people who make it happen,” Bates said in a statement. He will report to GoPro founder and CEO Nicholas Woodman.

Bates was among the first Microsoft executives to depart following the appointment of Satya Nadella as Microsoft CEO earlier this year. Bates had been an executive VP at Microsoft, leading business development efforts.

GoPro last month filed papers with the Securities and Exchange Commission to hold an initial public offering.
