Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer to Retire Within 12 Months

GETTY_82313_Steve Ballmer 1.jpg?__SQUARESPACE_CACHEVERSION=1377264727070KIMIHIRO HOSHINO/AFP/Getty Images (NEW YORK) -- After 33 years at the company, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer will retire within the next 12 months.  Until a successor is chosen, Ballmer will continue as CEO, the company said Friday morning. "There is never a perfect time for this type of transition, but now is the right time," Ballmer, 57, said in a statement. 

"We have embarked on a new strategy with a new organization and we have an amazing senior leadership team. My original thoughts on timing would have had my retirement happen in the middle of our company's transformation to a devices and services company. We need a CEO who will be here longer term for this new direction," the statement continued.

The company said lead independent director John Thompson will head up the search for a new CEO and the committee will include founder and Chairman Bill Gates.   Investors cheered the news, sending Microsoft shares up 6.7 percent to $34.57 just after the opening bell in New York.

"The board is committed to the effective transformation of Microsoft to a successful devices and services company," Thompson said in a statement.  "As this work continues, we are focused on selecting a new CEO to work with the company's senior leadership team to chart the company's course and execute on it in a highly competitive industry."

Ballmer, who was Microsoft's 30th employee, has been CEO since 2000. He's overseen a period of change as the world's largest software maker has transitioned away from its focus on PC operating systems to multiple platforms and hardware such as tablets.
