It is a great moment for India because an Indian has risen to the highest technical appointment in the history of the Indian IT industry. Of course, Satya is to be celebrated as a global technology citizen before being an Indian. Becoming Microsoft CEO is one of the most coveted and most challenging jobs in the world.
The world is seeing technology advancements, discontinuities and new challengers. In that context, these are interesting times for Microsoft and Satya has his job cut out for him. We wish him our very best. What a great start for 2014!
As an Indian I feel proud beyond words. We will all learn from Satya how he steers a great company that is at crossroads, to its rightful place in history. I think he brings quiet credibility and a great leadership style and we wish him the very best.
