Microsoft’s new CEO Satya Nadella along with Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer yesterday addressed hundreds of Microsoft employee’s regarding this new change at Microsoft. Microsoft’s official blog puts it in a good way as below,
As hundreds of Microsoft employees swarmed around a small stage and craned their necks over three floors of balconies and stairwells, raising voices and clapping hands to welcome the company’s third CEO, Satya Nadella – and to honor the previous two CEOs, Steve Ballmer and Bill Gates.
On that stage in the middle of the Studio D atrium, the company’s three CEOs Satya Nadella, Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer stood together to talk about the future of Microsoft.
“I am honored, humbled and excited – three words that describe what I feel,” said Nadella, who thanked Gates and Ballmer and smiled into a crowd documenting everything with a sea of Windows Phone devices. “You and Steve have built an amazing company. The technology this company produces has changed the world.”
“He’s amazing,” Ballmer said in his characteristic fist-pumping style, which prompted a reaction akin to fans watching a Beast Mode moment. “Satya is thoughtful. Satya is cool. Satya is deep. He sees the playing field. He really thinks things through. He’s absolutely the perfect choice as our new CEO.”
“I second everything Steve said, about this is the right choice for us. I think we’ll mark this as a very exciting day,” said Gates. “Microsoft was founded on a belief in the magic of software. We’ve got some amazing strengths – and we’ve also got some challenges … I’m thrilled we got the right leader to take the software to the next level.”
