The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Ballmer plans a long tenure at Microsoft

The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: Ballmer plans a long tenure at Microsoft "Ballmer said he'll work at least 14 more years, which would give him an extraordinary 17 years as chief executive. That's more than double the average tenure of chief executives, 7.3 years, according to a study last year by Booz Allen Hamilton, a McLean, Va.-based research company.
The timing also would leave Ballmer, 47, running the company for several years after Chairman Bill Gates is expected to retire. In a recent Seattle Times interview, Gates, 47, said he plans to retire in about 10 years."
