Steve Ballmer to retire: Microsoft searching for new CEO

Microsoft announced on Friday that CEO Steve Ballmer plans to retire within the next 12 months. Steve Ballmer joined Microsoft as the 30th employee as a business manager. He became the CEO of Microsoft in January 2000, taking over the role from founder Bill Gates.
Microsoft’s Board of Directors has created a special committee to direct the succession process which includes Microsoft founder and chairman of the board Bill Gates. This is no easy job as Microsoft is a huge company with a wide range of product.
Despite some of the criticism, I think we will all miss Steve Ballmer. It’s difficult to find another CEO of a big company that provide us with so much comedy materials. In the meantime, let’s Bing for a new Microsoft CEO.
