07:54 EDTMSFT, QCOM, FMicrosoft loses potential candidate as Qualcomm names Mollenkopf next CEO
Chipmaker Qualcomm (QCOM) this morning announced that its current Chief Operating Officer, Steve Mollenkopf, was promoted to Chief Executive Officer-elect. The news this morning follows a report from Bloomberg last night that Mollenkopf was said to be considered among the candidates to replace Microsoft's (MSFT) departing CEO Steve Ballmer. WHAT'S NEW: Bloomberg, citing people familiar with the matter, said last night that Microsoft was considering Mollenkopf among the candidates to replace its outgoing CEO Steve Ballmer. Then, this morning, Qualcomm announced that its board of directors approved a succession plan under which Mollenkopf, the company's current COO, will become CEO effective March 4, 2014, following the company's annual stockholders meeting. At that time, Dr. Paul Jacobs, the company's CEO for about the last nine years, will assume the role of Executive Chairman of the board, Qualcomm said. Mollenkopf, who has spent nearly 20 years at Qualcomm, was lauded by the company for leading the company's QCT chipset business and overseeing the company's $3.1B acquisition of Atheros, Qualcomm 's largest acquisition to date. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In its report last night, Bloomberg also noted that talk of Ford's (F) CEO Alan Mulally as a viable candidate to take over for Ballmer at Microsoft have eased in recent weeks. In its own report, the Detroit News stated that Alan Mulally told Ford's board at a meeting that there was "no change" in his status as the company's chief, regardless of the rumors of him replacing Ballmer at Microsoft.
