Microsoft Expects To Find Its Next CEO in 2014

Today Microsoft Corp. released a statement saying it expects to complete its search for a new Chief Executive Officer to replace the retiring Steve Ballmer. John Thompson, Lead Independent Director, and also the person heading the committee set up to search for Microsoft's next CEO, wrote in a company blog post that they have identified more than 100 candidates, and have narrowed it down to 20 candidates who he described as "extremely impressive in their own right." This statement does not give me much faith that they will find the right candidate for the job. Microsoft as a hold is such a major company its hard for me to imagine there are over 100 people who could be suited for the job. I think its a small community of people who could be considered for the job, but I hope they find the right person.
