Satya Nadella is somewhat of a rockstar. He has led a major transformation at Microsoft Inc. (MSFT) just three years after being named its CEO.
The stock is up about 35% and he has more than doubled its market cap.
Granted, the bar was low. Microsoft (which is one of Jim Cramer's AAP portfolio holdings) was in pretty dire shape before he took over in 2014. Windows 8 had debuted with poor reception, it was struggling to navigate the smartphone revolution and Zune, the company's iPod lookalike, was considered one of the worst product flops in tech history. There was no doubt that Microsoft had maintained a longstanding legacy in Silicon Valley, but many agreed that it needed a new strategy to compete against its more nimble counterparts like Apple Inc. (APPL) and Alphabet Inc. (GOOGL) .
So watch our video above to see some of his biggest accomplishments.
