Ballmer may resign from Microsoft board after new CEO is named, Gates’ role still unclear

Microsoft’s new CEO search has continued into 2014, but a new rumor suggests that outgoing CEO Steve Ballmer is planning to step down from Microsoft’s board of directors. Citing people familiar with the situation, Recode reports that Ballmer won’t be directly involved with Microsoft’s board once a suitable CEO replacement is found. While Ford’s Alan Mulally ruled himself out of the position earlier this month, recent reports suggest Microsoft is also considering Ericsson CEO Hans Vestberg as a potential Ballmer successor. If Recode’s report is accurate, and Ballmer is planning to step away from Microsoft entirely, then it marks an even bigger shift for the 57-year-old who has spent the majority of his life at the software giant.
