Under his leadership, the company recovered from the failures in the mobile phone and internet search market, as well as a warning of the importance of its flagship Windows operating system. He has focused the company around cloud computing and artificial intelligence while breathing new life into the Office software franchise by shifting it more to the cloud and to other operating systems. As Microsoft names Satya Nadella as Chairman, he will continue to hold the position of CEO as well!
The new announcement of Microsoft names Satya Nadella as Chairman came after the corporation’s shares have soared more than sevenfold. India-born Nadella has also been involved in stepping up Microsoft’s business including billion-dollar acquisitions like LinkedIn, Nuance Communications and ZeniMax.
