Gates Foundation again finds CEO at Microsoft

Gates Foundation again finds CEO at Microsoft: "With Stonesifer stepping down, the much more experienced, sophisticated and incredibly influential Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, now the world's largest philanthropy, has named as its new chief executive another long-time leading company insider, Jeffrey Raikes, 49, head of the Microsoft Business Division.

'Bill and I considered many extraordinary candidates from around the world to head the foundation,' said Melinda Gates, speaking in a teleconference Monday. 'Jeff shares our passion for these issues and has respect for the culture we have cultivated at the foundation."
