See All Three Microsoft CEOs in History on Stage


Satya Nadella is the new CEO of Redmond giant Microsoft, officially becoming the third leader of the company after Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer. The three took the stage to announce these changes in front of more than 100,000 Microsoft employees, explaining that Redmond has an excellent opportunity to continue its efforts for more innovations with the new CEO at the helm of the company. While Satya Nadella explained that he was honored and excited to be the new Microsoft CEO, John Thompson, the new chairman that succeeds Bill Gates, added that Nadella was the best choice the company could make for the top job, especially because he was an internal talent that already spent more than 20 years working for the software giant.
