While Microsoft will celebrate its 40th anniversary next year, the company had two CEO: co-founder, Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer. Officially selected Tuesday Satya Nadella is the third captain at the helm. It will navigate the turbulent waters, in a strong position on the front of the cloud and businesses but worth the side of the mobile and the general public.

Nadella was born in Hyderabad, India, in 1967. He finished his training as an electrical engineer with a master in the United States and got a job at Sun Microsystems.

3. He has never run a business

This is one of the points on which he will have to prove, especially against Wall Street.
