Investors also interested in CSC CEO Mike Lawrie

A group of Microsoft's top shareholders is reportedly eyeing Ford CEO Alan Mulally and Computer Sciences Corp CEO Mike Lawrie as top candidates to fill Steve Ballmer's position, unnamed sources have told Reuters. A list of potential candidates is said to have been drafted by a committee within Microsoft's board, through meetings with shareholders and advisors.

The list reportedly started with approximately 40 names and has since narrowed down to a smaller group headed by Mulally and Lawrie. Both executives are considered to be "turnaround experts" that could help restructure the company to better engage the burgeoning market for mobile devices.

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates is said to be part of the four-person special committee, entrusted with a veto power on any potential successor to Ballmer.
