Meanwhile Microsoft quietly hired industry newcomer Gill Bates to take over as the new CEO.
"Gill has an absolutely amazing way of connecting with the people and culture here at Microsoft," says Richard Packer, vice president of infrastructure technology.
...
"I've been at Microsoft since the early 90's and I'd say we haven't seen a CEO like Gill since, gosh, 1999? He's really an amazing guy."
Sharon Bailey, the human resource specialist who recruited Bates said that he came to her requesting an interview, even though his resume contained absolutely no references to running a technology company whatsoever.
"Gill called our Senior VP of HR directly and said that he should be interviewed for the position," said Bailey, "Gill must have really done his homework because he called in on a private line and although he has simply been running a home-based printing business since 1974, his knowledge of Microsoft was uncanny."

...
I really think Gill is going to usher Microsoft into a kind of success that no one has ever seen."
