Microsoft has finally named their new CEO and it’s taken them months of searching! We can finally tell you everything you need to know about this tech genius!

The 47-year-old hails from India and he’s worked at Microsoft for over 20 years. has the top five facts about this new Microsoft head that will leave you with enough to sound like a smarty pants in the next convo with your man.

Satya Nadella’s Biggest Challenge

1. Satya was born in Andhra Pradesh, India, and earned an MS in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin — Milwaukee and an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.

2. He grew up playing cricket!

3. Satya joined Microsoft in 1992.

4. His salary in 2013 was roughly $7.6 million — wow!

5. He has been married for 22 years and he has three kids!

It sounds like they couldn’t have picked a better and more experienced person to run the company! With all of his years of experience, there couldn’t possibly be a better fit.

But we must say that we can’t help but think back to Ashton Kutcher‘s portrayal of Steve Jobs, in the 2013 film Jobs. Although a competing company, the film showed just how tough it is to run a tech company, so we don’t envy Satya!
