A McMaster alumnus may be on the short list for one of the top jobs in the tech industry.
Nokia CEO Stephen Elop’s name is being bandied about as a possible replacement for outgoing Microsoft CEO Steven Ballmer.
This, after the blockbuster 7.2-billion dollar deal was announced this week that will see Microsoft take over Nokia.
Elop was born in Ancaster and studied computer engineering and management at McMaster.
He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in 1986, second in his class.
Elop is also a former executive with Microsoft.
