Gregory Maffei took over as president and CEO of John Malone’s Liberty Media on Wednesday, officially assuming a position he was named to last November.

Mr. Maffei, who at one time was chief financial officer of software giant Microsoft, will replace Mr. Malone, who became interim CEO last year after former President and CEO Robert Bennett announced he was retiring from Liberty.

With Mr. Maffei taking the CEO reins, Mr. Malone will resume his role as chairman of the media company.
