The computing giant did not name Ballmer's successor, but he will remain onboard until his replacement is named. Ballmer has spent the last 33 years with Microsoft. "There is never a perfect time for this type of transition, but now is the right time," Ballmer said in a statement. "We have embarked on a new strategy with a new organization and we have an amazing Senior Leadership Team.

We need a CEO who will be here longer term for this new direction."
