Seagate boss flees Microsoft

Written by Nick Farrell



I am justified, you are ancient

After being a key player in selecting Microsoft’s new chief executive, Seagate boss Steve Luczo stepped down from Microsoft’s board of directors. According to Redmond, the move is so that he can focus on his day job as chief executive of digital storage company Seagate Technology.

But Luczo's exit comes just six weeks after the appointment of Satya Nadella as Microsoft chief executive, which Luczo played a key role. Luczo said that with the CEO search completed and Satya off to a strong start, this felt like an appropriate time to make this change so I can turn my full attention to leading Seagate.

Luczo was a member of Microsoft's board since May 2012 and was the board's youngest and newest member. In fact he was also considered one of the directors who at least understood how to turn their computers on. His exit has called into question Microsoft’s inability to keep younger board members recently. Netflix Chief Executive Reed Hastings left Microsoft's board in 2012 after five years' service.

The board now has 10 members, including former Chief Executive Officers Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer who are fast approaching retirement age.
