Mulally, Elop, Bates, Nadella on Microsoft’s CEO short list, report says

Ford CEO Alan Mulally, Nokia Devices & Services head Stephen Elop, Microsoft Business Development head (and former Skype CEO) Tony Bates, and Microsoft Cloud and Enterprise group chief Satya Nadella are apparently among those on a short list of candidates to replace retiring Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, according to a Reuters report.

Ballmer announced in August that he would retire once his successor has been found — a process expected to take a maximum of 12 months.

Naming the new CEO could still take several more months, according to the Reuters report.

Microsoft shares, meanwhile, closed Tuesdsay at $36.64, up 70 cents and a six-year high.
