Microsoft is down to two choices for its next CEO and according to sources, they are two very different candidates. Both men are corporate guys through and through and each has risen from engineering management through the corporate ranks to become an executive.
Alan Mulally, CEO of Ford, and Satya Nadella, President of Microsoft’s Server and Tools business, are the last men standing according to sources. They couldn’t be any different. Although rumor has it that Mulally could be brought on to groom his successor, who could be Nadella.
