And we have finely got a new Microsoft CEO, It will be Satya Nadella who takes the post as a president of the Microsoft. The company released the news for some days ago. Nadella will be Microsoft’s third president in history. He succeeds Steve Ballmer that ending after 13 years.
According to a press release Microsoft sent out so will Nadella become CEO of Microsoft and a member of the Board with immediate effect, Previously, he was responsible for Microsoft’s cloud division.
In a statement from Bill Gates, we can hear his nice words for the new Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella:
“In changing times like this , there is no person who is better to lead than Microsoft Satya Nadella . Satya is a proven leader with strong development skills , business vision and an ability to unite people. His vision of how technology will be used and seen around the world is exactly what Microsoft needs as the company enters its next phase of expansion of the product innovation and growth”
This is quite surprising, if this is the thought of Nadella then we must ask us why they did not choose Satya earlier as CEO, he have been one that Microsoft have spoken about, but he get choosen first after couple of others have say no to the post.
Steve Ballmer has sent out an email to company employees in which he say farewell. He will retain a seat on the board.
Simultaneously with this announcement of the new president, Microsoft also announced that the founder Bill Gates will leave his post as chairman of the board, and instead take a role as an adviser to Nadella but keep a seat on the board. Bill Gates says he’ll will add a third of his time at Microsoft, to act as support to Satya Nadella. John Thompson, will take over as chairman.
