Rumour: Satya Nadella Set to Become Microsoft CEO - News

By Craig Snow, January 31, 2014

Satya Nadella, currently head of Microsoft's cloud computing division, looks set to take over from Microsoft's current CEO Steve Ballmer.

It follows multiple runners and riders for the job being tipped over the course of the last few months, from Julie Larson-Green to Stephen Elop. According to Bloomberg Nadella is the mostly likely candidate to be tipped so far, however.

Indian-born Nadella has worked for the firm for over 22 years, but despite that his online and media presence is fairly minimal, making him a fairly unknown candidate outside of Microsoft itself.
