Microsoft CEO Selection Almost Complete, Announcement Expected Next Week

Recode, with people close to the matter revealing that the software titan has almost completed the selection of its next CEO — a lengthy process that has taken no less than 160 days since Ballmer made his retirement plans public. In fact, an official announcement is prepared for next week. The most interesting bit in all this is that the company has talked with more than 100 candidates for what is undoubtedly the most prestigious open position in the technology industry. By far. Bill Gates has been leading the special committee that the board tasked with landing a new CEO. And in line with previous reports, Satya Nadella is the one that will take over from Ballmer, with the report claiming that a couple of other internal candidates are also involved with these last minute talks. Names like Kevin Turner and Tony Bates are thrown around, but both are behind Nadella as of this moment. The board is backing him, and unless the situation drastically changes, Nadella will make his first public appearance as Microsoft CEO at BUILD 2014 in April. File all of this under rumors, for now, but even if the company does not make an announcement next week, this much is clear that the search for the third Microsoft CEO is almost complete. It is only a matter of time before the new person takes charge.]]>
