Kevin Turner could be Microsoft’s next CEO, according to this report

Speculation and rumors continue surrounding the next CEO for Microsoft, after Steve Ballmer’s retirement. We’ve recently heard chatter about names like Stephen Elop, Alan Mulally, and Tony Bates, among others, but a new report claims that the board has already made a decision, and it’s not any of the aforementioned possible candidates.

It could go either way, really, so treat this accordingly. Kevin Turner is currently the Chief Operating Officer of Microsoft, being in charge with the software giant’s global “sales, marketing and services organization of more than 47,000 employees in more than 190 countries”. According to this report, he is the person the board decided to nominate for the CEO position of Microsoft.

The report also mentions that Turner would be at the helms of Microsoft for about two-to-three fiscal years, after which Nokia’s ex-CEO, Stephen Elop, could take over. Again, these are unverifiable rumors, but just in case, let us know what you think.
