It's hard to believe this guy is on the shortlist to become Microsoft's next CEO. I guess the good news is that, if he is selected as CEO, his track record suggests he won't make it more than a year or two.
Both the Finnish press and government have savaged him for getting a $25 million payday even though Nokias market share and stock price both plunged under his watch. To compound matters, Elop has also refused to give back any of the $25 million he made after selling the companys handset division to Microsoft because he claims hell need all the money he can get for his impending divorce. Even before Elop sold off the companys handset division, Nokia investors had long questioned his decision to go exclusively with Windows Phone as the companys mobile platform and accused him of putting the company on the road to hell.
