Chief Executive Officer – Microsoft Corporation
Satya Nadella is a Telugu Brahmin (caste).
He was born in Hyderabad in 1967. His father was an IAS Officer and was part of the National Planning Commission during 2004-09. Satya completed his Bachelors from India and followed it up with Masters in Computer Science from Milwaukee & MBA from University of Chicago.
Satya Nadella has been with Microsoft for over 20 years and been part of various cutting edge technologies including Online Services, Servers, Enterprise Databases, Cloud, etc. We believe his success at each of his appointed roles must have been outstanding. Which is why Microsoft Corporation promoted Satya to be its CEO in 2013 replacing Steve Ballmer.
Satya has his work cut out for him as Microsoft faces competition in Search, Mobile, Cloud & other emerging technologies. His recent initiative to make Windows mobile free of cost shows that Mobile is an area where Microsoft intends to be very aggressive in gaining market share.
Satya is married to Anupama and they have three kids. The Nadella family stays in Washington State, USA. In his personal life, Satya is known to be cricket fan. His success was celebrated in his village near Hyderabad.
Quite astonishingly Microsoft has had only 3 CEOs till date – Bill Gates, Steve Ballmer & now Satya Nadella. I am sure those are big boots that he has to fill in!
