Tech giant Microsoft has reportedly narrowed down its list of potential CEO candidates to just five, including former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop and Ford's Alan Mulally.

The race is on to replace current MS CEO Steve Ballmer, who has held the job since January 2000 and announced in August this year that he would be stepping down within 12 months.

Reuters is resporting that former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop, Ford’s Alan Mulally, Microsoft’s cloud and business head Satya Nadella, and former Skype CEO Tony Bates have each advanced to the next round for consideration.

Reuters said that other names are on the shortlist, but haven’t been publicly revealed.

Ballmer has previously said that his biggest regret was a lack of focus on Windows Mobile in the early 2000s, leaving Microsoft a distant third in the current smart phone market. He hosted his last company meeting in September 2013.
