The current board unanimously nominated Charles Noski, 51, who is also a former chief financial officer at AT&T and Helmut Panke, 57, BMW chairman, to Microsoft’s board of management,

Noski was a partner at Deloitte & Touche up until 1990. He joined AT&T in 1999, serving as senior executive vice president and chief financial officer and was named vice chairman of AT&T’s board of directors in 2002. Noski retired from AT&T following completion of its restructuring in November 2002.

Panke has worked for car giant BMW since 1982 in a variety of positions and, since May 2002, served as its chairman of the board of management.

The board also nominated for re-election the eight directors that are currently serving.

According to the software giant, the expansion of its board of directors is another in a series of steps taken to ‘enhance strong corporate governance at Microsoft’.
