Microsoft’s super-boss Steve “Developers, developers, developers” Ballmer has announced his intention to resign from his position as CEO within the next 12 months.
“There is never a perfect time for this type of transition, but now is the right time,” Ballmer claimed in a press release.
“My original thoughts on timing would have had my retirement happen in the middle of our company’s transformation to a devices and services company. We need a CEO who will be here longer term for this new direction.”
A special committee has been appointed by the Microsoft Executive Board to oversee the process of finding a replacement for Ballmer, who originally joined Microsoft in 1980.
Best of luck, Steve, from all of us here at games.on.net, and thanks for everything.
