Ford Alan Mulally

Microsoft's Steve Ballmer won't be heading up the company for much longer, leaving his post later this year. The company is currently looking for a replacement and rumours have pointed the finger at numerous potential candidates, including both Stephen Elop at Nokia and Ford's Alan Mulally.

Mulally has previously denied any plans to move to Microsoft and once again the Ford CEO shoots down any reports he may be leaving Ford for Redmond's CEO position in an interview with Associated Press.

In the interview, Mulally reaffirmed plans to stay at Ford at least through 2014. We're back to square one with Stephen Elop still on the rumoured list, alongside the likes of Microsoft Executive VP Tony Bates and Cloud and Enterprise Chief Satya Nadella. Microsoft is expected to reach a decision later this year.
