Ericsson CEO Hans Vestberg is under consideration as a candidate for Microsoft CEO, people briefed on Microsoft's search told Bloomberg. Vestberg, 48, is in the running alongside other candidates, such as Microsoft cloud-computing chief Satya Nadella and former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop, as well as other outsiders. Microsoft's lead independent director John Thompson, who is heading the search, wrote in a December blog post that the board plans to complete the search in the "early part of 2014".
