A lot of you have likely heard of Bill Gates (the previous CEO and current chairman of Microsoft) but have likely never seen him emotional, but today is your chance too, as a video has now been posted by The Verge showing a speech by the chairman as he talks about the company’s search for a new CEO leading up Steve Ballmer’s leave.
He didn’t reveal any possible candidates for the job only stating that “it’s a complex role to fill,” noting that Ballmer’s successor would need to be comfortable running a company like Microsoft.
He then continued to say in a somewhat emotional statement for the former CEO: “We’ve got a commitment to make sure the next CEO is the right person for right time for the company we both love, we share a commitment that Microsoft will succeed as a company that makes the world a better place.”
You can view the full speech in the video below.
