Satya Nadella named Fortune’s Businessperson of the Year 2019
Microsoft`s India-born CEO Satya Nadella has grabbed the top spot in Fortune`s “Businessperson of the Year 2019” list. Other Indian-origin CEOs in the Top 20 list are Mastercard CEO Ajay Banga (8th spot) and Santa Clara, California-based computer networking company Arista`s head Jayshree Ullal (18th position).
Fortune`s annual list features 20 business leaders “who tackled audacious goals, overcame impossible odds, found creative solutions”.
“Key to his leadership style is a willingness to delegate, particularly to three powerful members of his management team: president Brad Smith, who runs policy and legal affairs; Amy Hood, Microsoft`s chief financial officer; and chief people officer Kathleen Hogan. Each cuts a wide swath in areas many CEOs call their own, a state of affairs that suits Nadella just fine,” the news magazine reported.
Under Nadella`s leadership, Microsoft is unstoppable. The recent $10 billion Pentagon Cloud contract win over Amazon Web Services (AWS) is tantamount to the fact that Nadella is hell-bent to make Microsoft the best tech company in the world.
