Microsoft CEO search focuses on Ford's Alan Mulally
A group of Microsoft's top shareholders is reportedly eyeing Ford CEO Alan Mulally and Computer Sciences Corp CEO Mike Lawrie as top candidates to fill Steve Ballmer's position, unnamed sources have <a href=" logyNews">told</a> <em>Reuters</em>. A list of potential candidates is said to have been drafted by a committee within Microsoft's board, through meetings with shareholders and advisors.<br /><br />The list reportedly started with approximately 40 names and has since narrowed down to a smaller group headed by Mulally and Lawrie. Both executives are considered to be "turnaround experts" that could help restructure the company to better engage the burgeoning market for mobile devices.<br />

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates is said to be part of the four-person special committee, entrusted with a veto power on any potential successor to Ballmer.
