Nadella got a new position at Microsoft

by archyw

Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, was unanimously elected yesterday by the company’s board of directors as chairman of the board, a 53-year-old Indian-born businessman after twenty years as the company’s first executive after Bill Gates to hold these two positions simultaneously. Nadella will replace John Thompson as head of the council, who was appointed chairman the same day the current CEO took over the baton from Steve Ballmer.

Nadella took over as CEO at the head of Microsoft’s cloud business in 2014, and during her approximately seven years in that position, she was able to give the company a new impetus, which has received widespread recognition from both her direct colleagues and the wider profession. Under the leadership of the CEO, Microsoft has been able to become the most valuable company in the world, and in this respect, only Apple has managed to overtake it ever since.

The work of the CEO was especially appreciated by the Board of Directors in 2020, the year of the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic – the company achieved sales growth of more than 14% this year alone, with PC sales contributing to a pick-up in demand for cloud services ( along with Windows license sales).

Satya Nadella was reappointed a little over a year after Bill Gates, Microsoft’s first president and CEO, left the board, which later turned out to have involved a work affair or an investigation into it.

John Thompson, the outgoing chairman of Microsoft’s board of directors, has held the position since 2014, with the independent leader seduced from Symantect by the Redmond firm, where Thompson previously served as president and CEO. The outgoing President will continue to be a member of Microsoft’s Board of Directors.
