Windows 7: Microsoft won't name new CEO until early 2014

Microsoft won't name new CEO until early 2014

Microsoft won't be announcing the name of its next CEO until early 2014.

That's the word from the head of the CEO Search Committee and Board Member John W. Thompson.

While many of us Microsoft watchers had been hearing talk that Microsoft would name its new CEO before this year was out, that's not happening, after all.

From Thompson's December 17 update on "The Official Microsoft Blog":

"We identified over 100 possible candidates, talked with several dozen, and then focused our energy intensely on a group of about 20 individuals, all extremely impressive in their own right. As you would expect, as this group has narrowed, we’ve done deeper research and investigation, including with the full Board. We’re moving ahead well, and I expect we’ll complete our work in the early part of 2014."

In my opinion this new CEO appointment is very, very critical.
A mistake made on this appointment could do huge damage to Microsoft in the short and long term.
Take your time Microsoft; your customers and employees deserve the best.

Might be funny if the selection is one of Ballmer's other personalities

I find it impossible to believe they don't already have a person. It's just a matter of making the announcement public. Something I think everyone wants to do after the holidays are over.

My two cents.

It takes a long time to get clearance from ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX CNN, MSNBC, SNL, plus Jessie Jackson, and Hillary Clinton and Rush Limbuagh, and the A&E network. Not to mention how they're going to spin that lie he/she told in 1981 when asked "Do I look fat in these pants", and he/she obviously lied when they answered "No".
