Answer by Brad Silverberg
Satya worked for me in the mid-90's around the time that I was running the Personal Systems Division, the Internet Platform Division, and the Developer Tools Division. Though he was junior at the time, I immediately identified him as a top talent to be mentored and developed. In every meeting I had with him, I would leave the meeting energized. He would say insightful things and then go make them happen. He brings people together, and he is someone other people who've worked with him want to see succeed.
