About Steve Ballmer

American businessman and the chief executive of Microsoft, has a net worth of $34.2 billion in November 2017, according to Bloomberg. The Detroit native dropped out of Stanford M.B.A. program to join Harvard classmate Bill Gates in 1980 as employee number 30. The first business manager hired by Gates. He dumped 18% of his shares in November 2010, his biggest sale ever and first in seven years. Bill Gates’ college mate dismisses it’s a move to the exits, saying he’s “fully committed” to Microsoft, where he’s been boss since 2000. In that time Microsoft has lost half of its value while profits have doubled. Analysts put the breakup value of the company up to three times current stock price. The software sales juggernaut has sold 350 million copies of Office and 400 million copies of Windows 7
