New Microsoft's CEO by the end of the year

Written by

Reading time is around minutes.

According to the announcement, Steve Ballmer will withdraw from  the leading position at Microsoft by August next year, but according to new infomation it could be much earlier.


In fact, if we can believe to the Bloomberg, Microsoft could get a new executive director by the end of the year. The company is currently considering a list of candidates for the CEO, sources say, and the choice is reportedly already narrowed down to a smaller number of candidates. Members of the CEO selection committee have already talked with Stephen Elop from (former) Nokia, Alan Mulally of Ford, and John Donahoe of eBay who reportedly turned down the offer. As potential candidates Paul Maritz from Pivotala and Tony Bates from Microsoft were also mentioned.

Period to select a new CEO will depend on negotiations over contract terms, and in the case of candidates outside of Microsoft, about time which could take for them to departure from the company.
