The countdown to selecting the new Microsoft CEO is approaching the takeoff stage. And the Ford CEO, Mulally, who was one of the prime candidates is unlikely to become the head honcho of Microsoft. His chances have dwindled due to his vacillating attitude.

While the most wanted candidate for CEO of Microsoft was Alan Mulally of Ford Motors, his chances are getting slimmer by the second. There may be a dark horse in the background who will be the likely chosen one for Bill Gates’ organization. 

Meanwhile, the administration at Ford Motors is observing Mulally very closely in order to see which way he swerves. Mulally, Mulally, who is in his late sixties, has expressed interest in the new job and so he is one of the top contenders for the position left vacant by Steve Ballmer. 

However, some of the board members of Ford are getting irritated by Mulally’s “keep them guessing” attitude. Though Mulally will not be attending a meeting they’ll be convening soon, it is clear as the light of day that the execs at Ford Motors are seriously considering asking him point blank regarding what he intends to do. Some rumors which are circulating point towards Mulally remaining at Ford Motors. 

Mulally has taken Ford Motors to the top. There is no doubt about that. Some say he will leave the people at Ford Motors even if he doesn’t join Microsoft. Patrick Gelsinger remains the only one who in the shape of a dark horse may yet take the lucrative position at Microsoft.
