Steve Ballmer Stepping Down From Microsoft’s CEO Position

| August 23, 2013 | 97 Replies


Steve Ballmer, current CEO of Microsoft, eccentric “Crazy dude” with a certainly “different” style has just announced in an open email that he plans to step down from his position as CEO of Microsoft within the next 12 months.

“We have embarked on a new strategy with a new organization and we have an amazing Senior Leadership Team. My original thoughts on timing would have had my retirement happen in the middle of our company’s transformation to a devices and services company. We need a CEO who will be here longer term for this new direction.”

He has not yet announced a successor for the CEO position, but whoever it may be; I pray to god they take WP a bit more seriously.

Place your bets below on the next head honcho fo MSFT!
