Associated Press reports that Microsoft has named Hyderabad born Satya Nadella as the new CEO of their company. He’s been heading executive vice president for a while now and has been in-charge of Microsoft’s cloud computing offerings.
In other news, Bill Gates is also stepping down as chairman, but will stay on as technology adviser with John Thomson filling his shoes.
This change comes at a turbulent time for Microsoft, which is seemingly recovering from the Windows 8 fiasco and comes six months after Steve Ballmer announced that he would be stepping down. The new leadership is expected to help refocus the company on its core businesses, especially in the enterprise space.
