Meet Microsoft’s new CEO, Satya Nadella

Putting all the rumours to rest, finally it is official that India born Satya Nadella is the new CEO of Microsoft, the fourth largest organisation in the world. Recently it was in the news that Satya Nadella was going to replace the current CEO Steve Ballmer to become the first Indian CEO of the organisation and now the news has been confirmed officially. So what makes this Indian genius stand apart that the US software giant had to give this top- most position to an Indian? Let us take a closer look at Satya Nadella’s life to know what exactly made him tick.

Early life of Satya Nadella


Satya Nadella was born in Hyderabad, India to an IAS officer father and went to the Hyderabad Public School in Begumpet. Later on, he went on to attain a degree in Bachelor of Engineering from the famous Manipal Institute of Technology, Karnataka. The quest for knowledge did not stop there and soon Nadella moved to the US. After completing his MS from the Wisconsin- Milwaukee University and then an MBA from the University Of Chicago Booth School Of Business, Nadella started working for the famous Sun Microsystems, before switching to Microsoft in the year 1992. There has been no looking back for this India- born scholar who created a mark for himself in the history of both Microsoft as well as our country.

Satya Nadella is currently settled in the Washington state with his wife of 22 years as well as three children.

Satya’s way to success

Nadella is all set to take over the post of CEO, following which the current CEO Steve Ballmer will have an early retirement. It is a matter of pride that Nadella was interviewed along with other employees for this post and he emerged as the most suitable choice for leading this company. In Bill Gate’s words, “Satya is a proven leader with hard-core engineering skills, business vision and the ability to bring people together. His vision for how technology will be used and experienced around the world is exactly what Microsoft needs”.

Microsoft was supposed to make the announcement of their new CEO by the end of last year, but due to many prospective names, the search was pushed forward to the beginning of this year. Nadella’s selection as the CEO of Microsoft has arrived at a time when the company is gearing up for its deal with Nokia as well as its ongoing reorganisation. With everyone putting their trust in him as well as Bill Gates himself saying that the software giant is going into safe hands, it is surely a time of joy as well as overwhelm for Satya Nadella. Nadella also has experience in building the Bing search engine under Microsoft.

It’s a humbling day for me: Satya Nadella

While addressing Microsoft’s employees, Satya Nadella said that it has been a very humbling day for him. Also, he mentioned that it was a great honour for him and his work that he was being allowed to serve as well as lead the software giant company.

Meanwhile, Bill Gates will step down as the Chairman and be a technical advisor on the board of directors.

Having spent 22 years with this top software company, Nadella surely compliments the strengths of this company and also has the kelp to lead the company towards greater heights and places. According to the co- founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates, 46 year old Nadella is the most suitable person who could lead Microsoft. The world is now looking forward towards Nadella’s take on Microsoft’s ongoing mobile push and its future vision for technology- savvy devices.
