Bill Gates says he’s ‘very happy’ with Satya Nadella $MSFT
Bill Gates sat down with Bloomberg Television anchor Erik Schatzker at the Sibos conference in Boston today, where they discussed Microsoft’s strategy, the Ebola outbreak, his philanthropic efforts, financial payment systems in Africa and more.
On whether Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is moving fast enough, Gates said, “I’m very happy with what he’s doing. I see a new sense of energy. There’s a lot of opportunity there, some things the company isn’t the leader on, and he sees that he needs to change that.”
On Ebola hitting the U.S., Gates said, “…the fact that this Dallas patient was identified, the contacts are being traced, I feel confident the CDC is very much on top of that. I wish every country had a health system like that…the US government’s really stepping up on this and I think that is going to let the world get on top of it.”
On whether we’ll see him courtside at the Staples Center cheering on the L.A. Clippers with new owner Steve Ballmer, Gates said, “I’m not a guy who spends a ton of time watching sports games, but my friends who own teams, I enjoy spending time with them. So at some point probably.”
