Satya Nadella was born on August 19, 1967 in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India. He is the son of Bukkapuram Nadella Yugandher, a civil servant for the Indian government, and Divya Nadella.

Satya maintains an extensive education. He attended the Hyderabad Public School and then went to the Manipal Institute of Technology to earn a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering. Satya relocated to the United States and earned a master’s degree in computer science at the University of Wisconsin. He would also receive an MBA from the University of Chicago.

Satya has been married to Anupama Nadella since 1992. They have three children: Zain, Tain and Divya. The family presently resides in Washington State close to Microsoft headquarters.

Satya’s career in the U.S. began when he was hired by Sun Microsystems. During his tenure at the tech firm, he joined the technology team and helped hone his skills in the field.

He would eventually join Microsoft and lead several major projects for the tech titan. One of Satya’s pet projects was leading the development of the tech giant’s cloud computing initiatives. Satya’s acumen, dedication and leadership helped the construction of one of the largest cloud infrastructures on the planet today. His work in this field helped generate more than $20 billion in revenues.

Over the years, Satya has served as the senior vice-president of Research and Development, vice-president of the Microsoft Business Division and president of Server and Tools Business. In February 2014, Microsoft announced that Satya would become the company’s third chief executive officer and succeed Steve Ballmer. Since taking over the reins in the company, Microsoft has seen its revenues surge and its stock price has climbed about 50 percent to nearly $65 a share. The board of governors and shareholders decided to give him a raise and he now earns $18 million.

Outside of technology, Satya is an avid fan of cricket, enjoys writing poetry and is dedicated to the arts.

We estimate that Satya Nadella’s net worth is $90 million (2017).

So how much is $90 million really?

$90 million can help you establish your very own global cloud infrastructure. $90 million could also help you purchase more than 150,000 shares of Microsoft stock.
