According to the latest report from Reuters, at least three of the top 20 investors in Microsoft insisted Microsoft board to include Ford Motor CEO Alan Mulally and Computer Sciences Corp CEO Mike Lawrie to the CEO shortlist.
Microsoft board has appointed a special committee which is doing the CEO search for Microsoft and they are expected to name a CEO as soon as the end of this year.
Microsoft said it started with a list of about 40 people, including internal and external candidates, and has been narrowing it down, one of the sources said.
Do you think people like Alan Mulally and Mike Lawrie can handle Microsoft? I don’t think so. My choice will always go for an industry member.
