Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft, has successfully transformed the company through strategic leadership and AI adoption. Although initially known for Bing, Nadella pivoted the company towards cloud computing with Azure. He open-sourced products, made key acquisitions like Minecraft and LinkedIn, and doubled down on Azure, making Microsoft a $2 trillion company.

In a partnership with OpenAI, Nadella integrated generative AI into Bing and released Copilot, an AI tool for coding. Microsoft’s investment in OpenAI is proving to be a game-changer, putting the company at the forefront of the AI boom. Nadella’s vision is to democratize AI and bring its benefits to all 8 billion people on Earth. His thoughtful leadership and AI adoption have rekindled Microsoft’s innovative spirit.
