"Kathleen is an accomplished, well-respected and well-rounded leader who obsesses over our customers and is motivated by people's passion for how technology can change the world," Nadella said. "She is the right person to continue pushing our cultural transformation forward, and she will ensure Microsoft remains the best, most inclusive place to work."
