Former OpenAI CEO and president join Microsoft

Former OpenAI CEO Sam Altman and president Greg Brockman have been announced as Microsoft’s latest hired names.

Satya Nadella, Microsoft CEO, posted the news on X stating that Microsoft would be hiring the former OpenAI employees saying that they are excited to maintain the partnership with OpenAI:

In the announcement, Nadella added his excitement to work with Altman and Brockman as they join the advanced AI research team in the digital industry:

“And we’re extremely excited to share the news that Sam Altman and Greg Brockman, together with colleagues, will be joining Microsoft to lead a new advanced AI research team. We look forward to moving quickly to provide them with the resources needed for their success.”

OpenAI’s Leadership Changes

When Altman left OpenAI in November, it was allegedly as a result of him not being consistently “candid in his communications with the board.” Since his forced departure, Brockman also stepped down both as the president of the company and from his position on the company’s board. At the time, OpenAI posted:

OpenAI was deliberately structured to advance our mission: to ensure that artificial general intelligence benefits all humanity. The board remains fully committed to serving this mission. […] Mira is exceptionally qualified to step into the role of interim CEO. We have the utmost confidence in her ability to lead OpenAI during this transition period.”
