Satya Nadella is the new CEO and is effective now. He will be there in Microsoft’s board.
Nadella has been a longtime engineering executive and would be a natural choice to keep the software giant's technology and trends changes and uptodate.
Chairman John Thompso said that “Satya is clearly the best person to lead Microsoft, and he has the unanimous support of our Board. The Board took the thoughtful approach that our shareholders, customers, partners and employees expected and deserved.”
Microsoft founder and board member Bill Gates will be acting as Nadella’s advisor. He will help the new CEO in shaping technology and product directions in correct manner.
Gates added that “His vision for how technology will be used and experienced around the world is exactly what Microsoft needs as the company enters its next chapter of expanded product innovation and growth. He is proven leader with hard-core engineering skills, business vision and the ability to bring people together.”
