The current Cloud Chief at Microsoft, Satya Nadella, an Indian who was born in Hyderabad, is expected to be the next CEO of the company. The report was recently published in Bloomberg about him being the next chief executive.
After so much discussion and search the company seems to have finally found “the man”, who will now be positioned as the Chief Executive, its Nadella. The preparations to name him as CEO are almost complete, but when the company will announce it officially, seem veiled. Currently he is the Vice President of Microsoft’s Cloud and Enterprise division. Nadella has been a front-runner in the race of candidates considered appropriate to replace the CEO, Steve Ballmer as the new officer. Ballmer officially announced his step down from this post in August last year.
Speculations about replacing Bill Gates, Chairman at Microsoft are also being made. As per Bloomberg, Gates who is also the co-founder of Microsoft will be replaced by John Thompson, who is the lead independent director at this brand. If Gates leaves as suggested by PCWorld, Microsoft will lose two of its most iconic employees.
The biggest problem linked with replacing Gates or Ballmer is that no other executive at Microsoft has gone through the product range, as these two have. These entail the Xbox, a consumer business product or Azure which is a cloud service or Visual Studio, which is Windows business, server and deployment services and also the upcoming mobile business.
Nadella who is 44, is an engineer who was born in India and who has earned a degree in electronics and computer sciences from the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee, also business administration from the University of Chicago. Nadella has been employed at Microsoft since 1992 and has in his credit the launch of Commerce Server of Microsoft, which is BizTalk, and also the Microsoft’s Office Small Business Products.
Nadella, however, is most known for changing the Windows Live Search to Bing. Currently the search offering at Microsoft stands at 18.2%, which is based on the recent earnings of the company.
The sole issues associated with the selection of Nadella as the new CEO is that he has no experience as a chief executive, which is what makes others in the race like Tony bates who ran Skype or Allan Mulally from Ford, people who can’t just be left behind. Mulally, meanwhile in January, commented that he is not leaving Ford sooner.
