Microsoft’s annual shareholder meeting is going on today. Bill Gates made a very brief statement on the CEO search. It seemed to me he originally planned to say a little more, but emotions got the best of him.
Microsoft’s board is in search for the new CEO for Microsoft as current CEO Steve Ballmer is retiring next year. Microsoft previously announced that they are considering both internal and external candidates for this job. Reuters reported that former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop and current Ford CEO Alan Mulally are now part of the shortlisted external candidates list. Also the internal candidates under consideration includes former Skype CEO Tony Bates, who is now responsible for Microsoft’s business development, and Satya Nadella, the company’s cloud and enterprise chief.
More tidbits may come out of the meeting, we’ll have full coverage throughout the day.
