Who Will Be the Next CEO of Microsoft ? - Post Your Guess Here.




Steve Ballmer crying on losing his job

Steve Ballmer has been shown the door by the Microsoft Board and the hunt is on for a new CEO to run the company. Officially the line is that the new CEO will be appointed within the next year but indications are that they want to complete the appointment by the end of 2013.

Speculation is rife in the media as to who the next CEO will be, so I thought we could take a guess as well. I've added a poll with some of the possible candidates. The poll will be closed the day Microsoft announces the name of the new CEO. Cast your vote and comments as well.

Re: Who Will Be the Next CEO of Microsoft ? - Post Your Guess Here.

Guys please try to speculate seriously because this could give us some clue as to what direction one of the most important tech companies in the world will take. I noted that even on the site Next Microsoft CEO people have mostly voted for non-serious options. Some people have voted up Richard Stallman and Linus Torvalds who can obviously never be the CEO at Microsoft.

Chuck Norris

No, on a serious note, I think Allan Mulally can be a good option.

Yes.. many people are saying that he is the top choice, but there are a few things against him. Firstly the new CEO will be boxed in by the strategy put forward by Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer and Mullay is not the kind of person who likes to work with those restrictions. Secondly he is from a non-IT background and lastly he's 68 years old and very comfortable at Ford. I dont think hes going to give up that job and come over to Microsoft.

You never know, he might pick the job up just for the sheer challenges - many people are like that!

He has been publicly playing down talk that he will go over to Microsoft - Ford's Mulally dispels Microsoft CEO rumors - however he hasn't denied the rumours completely. So maybe he is keeping his options open. Lets see.

I'm surprised you didnt vote for Elop. He's also one of the top favourites.

MS should approach Elon Musk.
He's a great visionary, hard worker, still young at heart, and one of the most influential people of the 21st century!

I have voted for Elop. I think him bringing down Nokia was a Test he passed.

He is reportedly a strong contender but many in Microsoft have doubts about him as well because when he was the head of the Business Division of Microsoft from 2008-10 he didnt do anything spectacular ... he just sat there and they made a new version of office. Also while he did steer Nokia towards Windows Phone, even in Microsoft people recognise that Nokia eventually was headed towards bankruptcy under his leadership.

My feeling is that they wont select him. If they are going to select someone from inside the company, its probably going to be Tony Bates or Satya Nadella.

Your wish seems to be coming true. A large number of reports from credible news sources are saying that Nadella has been selected to be CEO and the announcement will be made in the next few weeks.
