Report: Bill Gates May Get Involved In Product Development At Microsoft After Announcing New CEO

Confirming the previous reports from WSJ and Recode, Bloomberg today reported that Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates may get involved in product development at Microsoft after the new CEO was announced. There were multiple reports in the past few days that Satya Nadella will be announced as the new CEO and Bill Gates will step down from his chairman position to get involved in product development.

As the board prepares to appoint Satya Nadella as Microsoft’s next chief executive officer, it’s considering replacing Gates as board chairman, people with knowledge of the matter have said. Gates would remain a director and be involved in product development, focusing less on administration, the people said. He’s weighing going to work at Microsoft at least one day a week, a person briefed on the matter said.
