Microsoft Says Board Will Complete CEO Search in 2014

Microsoft Corp., which is seeking a replacement for Chief Executive Officer Steve Ballmer, said it anticipates completing the search in the early part of 2014.

Lead independent director John Thompson, who is heading Microsoft’s CEO search committee, wrote in a blog post that the Redmond, Washington-based company has identified more than 100 candidates, talked with several dozen and has since focused on about 20 individuals, whom he deemed “extremely impressive in their own right.”
