Bill Gates Drops out of Microsoft’s Board to Help out Humanity’s Biggest Troubles

Must Read

Microsoft announced that co-founder Bill Gates will be stepping down from the board of directors to devote more time to making the world a better place. The 64-year-old already had stopped being a part of Microsoft for more than a decade after co-founding the Gates Foundation with his wife Melinda to quote “spend more time for philanthropy.”

Gates has served as the chairman of Microsoft’s board of directors until early 2014 and has now reportedly stepped down completely in an ultimate act of passing the torch away to his disciple – Satya Nadella.“It’s been a tremendous honor and privilege to have worked with and learned from Bill over the years,” Microsoft chief executive and company veteran Satya Nadella said in a Press release.  “Bill founded our company with a belief in the democratizing force to have worked with and learned from Bill over the years,” Nadella said Microsoft would continue to benefit from Gates’ “technical passion and advice” in his continuing role as a technical advisor.

Adding a more personal touch to the release, Nadella quoted “I am grateful for Bill’s friendship and look forward to continuing to work alongside him.” Gates left his CEO position in 2000, handing the company reins to Steve Ballmer to devote more time to his charitable foundation. He even gave up the role of chairman and at the same time, Nadella became Microsoft’s third CEO in 2014 taking the reins over from Ballmer.

Over time with Nadella at the helms, Microsoft becomes the world’s leading software company with their virtual monopoly leading to a much-documented and constraint-based trial in which the company managed to stay afloat enduring years of government badgering and constant surveillance.

With Gates stepping down from the board there will be an indirect effect on the company’s productivity, functionality and the overall image, however, will it be for the good or not, It is something that time will tell. Gate’s decision to step down for a bounty of goodwill was met with praise and appreciation from the international stage.
