Its only been about half a year since Microsoft's, Steve Ballmer, announced his retirement, and today it appears that the search for a new CEO may be coming to a close. In the beginning names such as Stephen Elop from Nokia, Alan Mulally from Ford and even Marissa Mayer from Yahoo were on the short list, but if a new report from VentureBeat is correct, none of those candidates made the final cut.

VentureBeat is reporting that just 160 days after Ballmer announced his exit plan, that Microsoft could announce his successor as early as next week. The report goes on to state that it appears that Microsoft is keeping the position in the family and that its current executive VP of cloud and enterprise business, Satya Nadella, has been chosen for the top seat. Nadella has been with Microsoft for the past 20 years and has served many roles at the company, making him familiar with the company's inner workings, goals and ambitions. The report says that Stephen Elop and Tony Bates are both still in the running as well, but it appears that the odds are in Nadella's favor this time.
