The report also suggested that Microsft’s board is considering removing Bill Gates from his role as chairman. Independent director John Thompson is believed to be a frontrunner for the position.

Ballmer announced last August that he planned to retire after a replacement was found in the next 12 months. Microsoft indicated at the end of last year that it hoped to name his successor in early 2014.
