Mi­crosoft has fi­nally got a new CEO and it is none other than In­dia-born Satya Nadella. The news from the Red­mond gi­ant came af­ter months of spec­u­la­tion. “Satya Nadella is ap­pointed as Mi­crosoft's CEO, ef­fec­tive im­me­di­ately,” read the com­pany an­nounce­ment. Nadella has re­placed Steve Ballmer, who re­signed last year. Mi­crosoft co-founder Bill Gates, said, “Dur­ing this time of trans­for­ma­tion, there is no bet­ter per­son to lead Mi­crosoft than Satya Nadella.”

"Satya is a proven leader with hard-core en­gi­neer­ing skills, busi­ness vi­sion and the abil­ity to bring people to­gether. His vi­sion for how tech­nol­ogy will be used and ex­pe­ri­enced around the world is ex­actly what Mi­crosoft needs,” he added.

In ad­di­tion, Bill Gates, who was the chair­man of the board of di­rec­tors, will step down from his po­si­tion and as­sume a new role on the board as tech­nol­ogy ad­vi­sor. John Thomp­son is to as­sume the role of chair­man, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment from Mi­crosoft.
