Altman and Brockman Join Microsoft After Leaving OpenAI

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella announced on X that the company is bringing aboard former OpenAI CEO Sam Altman and President Greg Brockman. On Nov. 20, enthusiasm was expressed by Nadella when he said that the news that Sam Altman and Greg Brockman, along with colleagues, will be joined by Microsoft to lead a new advanced AI research team is extremely exciting.

Nadella’s post also underscored Microsoft’s ongoing commitment to its partnership with OpenAI and its anticipation of working with the new CEO, Emmett Shear, who took over from Altman on Nov. 20.

Following Nadella’s announcement, Altman shared the post, adding, “The mission continues.”

Altman had been removed from OpenAI by the board of directors on Nov. 17, citing an alleged lack of consistent candor in communications with the board. Subsequently, Brockman resigned from his position on the OpenAI board.

Brockman, commenting on his departure from OpenAI, expressed being “shocked and saddened” by the events. Although the official statement from OpenAI framed his departure as stepping down, Brockman detailed that he was informed he was “being removed.”

During Altman’s absence, Mira Murati, the former Chief Technology Officer, assumed the role of interim CEO at OpenAI for three days. Murati joined OpenAI in 2018 when it operated as a nonprofit research center.

On Nov. 20, Emmett Shear was appointed as the interim CEO of OpenAI. Shear, the former CEO and co-founder of the video streaming platform Twitch, now leads OpenAI during this period.
