Bill Gates has taken a further step that takes him away from the managerial level of the company he co-founded in the 1970s.

If in 2008 you already decided to limit your tasks to dedicate more time to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and in 2014 you left the role of president of the Microsoft Board of Directors , now resigns to your position in said body. This leaves the total number of members at twelve .

in a comunicado, Microsoft explains that Gates is will continue working as a technology advisor both for Satya Nadella, the current CEO of the company, as well as for other executives.

To get off the Board, Gates will have more time to prioritize their philanthropic activities, including “the health, development, education, and his growing commitment to addressing climate change,”.
