Microsoft gains board seat at OpenAI following CEO shake up

A little over a weeks ago, OpenAI’s game of CEO musical chairs reverberated throughout the tech world and with the dust settling, it looks like Microsoft was the biggest winner at the end of the day.

A little over a weeks ago, OpenAI’s game of CEO musical chairs reverberated throughout the tech world and with the dust settling, it looks like Microsoft was the biggest winner at the end of the day.

According to a new memo from OpenAI’s new initial board, the company has reinstated co-founder Sam Altman as CEO, Mira Murati as returning CTO, and Greg Brockman resuming his duties as company president with the addition of Microsoft retaining a non-voting observer board seat.

The memo follows a couple of tumultuous weeks for OpenAI where co-founder and CEO Sam Altman was removed as CEO as well as former chairman Greg Brockman and Mira Murati was anointed interim CEO status.

Altman and Brockman were immediately welcomed with open arms from Microsoft days later with the company releasing its own statement indicating that the two, along with other OpenAI employees threatening a mass exodus, would be joining the company as part of a new in-house AI business.

During Altman’s renegotiations to return to his company OpenAI, it had been rumored that Microsoft was also back channeling for the exact board position it is now being granted.
