Ballmer hints that Stephen Elop is in running to be Microsoft CEO By Stephen Robinson@xstex· On 3 September, 2013
Stephen Elop has stepped down as Nokia CEO now that Microsoft has purchased its Devices & Services business and many thought he may have a shot at becoming Microsoft's next CEO, turns out that may just be correct.
In an interview with the Seattle Times Microsoft's soon to retire CEO Steve Ballmer hinted that Elop is in the running for the position:
Stephen will go from external [candidate] to internal. So the personable mobile exec will be keeping his name badge either way - time will tell, of course, which washroom he ultimately gets the key for.
While in no way is this a confirmation that he is being considered we would take a guess that it's highly likely.

Leadership changes at Nokia, post sell off of devices and service businesses to Microsoft | HiringSquare, 26 Aug 2014 [cached]
As part of his interim CEO role, Mr. Siilasmaa will, among other tasks, oversee strategy and have four direct reports: Michael Halbherr, Executive Vice President, HERE; Stephen Elop, Executive Vice President, Devices & Services; Timo Ihamuotila, Nokia CFO and interim President; and Jesper Ovesen, Executive Chairman of the NSN Board of Directors.
To avoid the perception of any potential conflict of interest between now and the pending closure of the transaction, Stephen Elop will step aside as President and CEO of Nokia Corporation, resign from the Board of Directors, and will become Executive Vice President, Devices & Services. The following Nokia Leadership Team members will report to Mr. Elop: Marko Ahtisaari, Executive Vice President, Design; Jo Harlow, Executive Vice President, Smart Devices; Juha Putkiranta, Executive Vice President, Operations; Timo Toikkanen, Executive Vice President, Mobile Phones; and Chris Weber, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing.
We expect that Mr. Elop, Ms. Harlow, Mr. Putkiranta, Mr. Toikkanen, and Mr. Weber would transfer to Microsoft at the anticipated closing.
Effective November 1, 2013 Stefan Pannenbecker will start leading Design, reporting to Mr. Elop.
To avoid the perception of any potential conflict of interest between now and the pending closure of the transaction, Stephen Elop will resign from the Nokia Board of Directors effective today.
