Steve Ballmer left the Microsoft Board of Directors
Steve Ballmer, former CEO of Microsoft, has officially confirmed its withdrawal from the Board of Directors of the company. His decision came into force immediately, thus ending 34 years of age, during which his personality played a key role in the development of the software giant. Ballmer sent a letter to the current head of Microsoft, Satya Nadella, in which he announced his plans for the future, writes The Verge.
The reason for this decision was the fact that after the resignation of chief Executive officer he became very busy. Recall that Ballmer has already bought the basketball team the Los Angeles clippers, but also spends a lot of time on teaching and other public initiatives. In the future he will focus fully on them, but will continue to be a shareholder of the software giant, where his career began over three decades ago.
Steve Ballmer is the 30th employee of the company – he was the first business Manager and more than ten years stood at the helm of Microsoft. Now to deal with the new challenges facing the company, will be Satya Nadella, the current CEO. In conclusion, we note that Ballmer said he is open to discuss any ideas and willing to give their tips for the upcoming Microsoft strategy to contribute to the transformation of Microsoft into an even more powerful brand.
