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. My original thoughts on timing would have had my retirement happen in the middle of our company’s transformation to a devices and services company. We need a CEO who will be here longer term for this new direction."
