According to a report by Re/code, Microsoft will likely name Satya Nadella as the successor to outgoing CEO Steve Ballmer next week. Nadella is the head of Microsoft’s enterprise and cloud division. Nadella has worked at Microsoft for over 20 years in various roles and has a strong technical background. He is also strongly familiar with Microsoft’s structure. There is also still a chance that Microsoft will name strategy head Tony Bates or former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop as Ballmer’s successor, but both of them seem to be further choices. Microsoft has been searching for replacements for around half a year.
