Chennai-Born Sundar Pichai is Now the CEO of Google

It’s always good news when we see a fellow Indian speedily climbing the ladder of success. Google’s Sundar Pichai, who earlier used to head the company’s strategic businesses, has been given more responsibility.

Larry Page, former CEO has handed over his responsibilities (and title) to Sundar Pichai. Meanwhile Larry Page, along with Sergey Brin, will be handling their new company – Alphabet.

And it is clear to us and our board that it is time for Sundar to be CEO of Google.

Before this Pichai, as the Senior Vice President, headed the most widely used OS in the world – Android, along with which he was incharge of Google Chrome, and oversaw the company’s suite of apps including Gmail and Docs. He was also working on research, search, maps, Google+ social network, ads and infrastructure. In October last year, the then CEO, Larry Page wanted to focus more on overall business strategy, off loading some of his responsibilities to Pichai. Now it seems like the entire responsibility has been handed over, and Sundar Pichai is officially incharge of Google.

    As you think Sundar Pichai is not going to be the CEO of the Giant GOOGLE Company. Sundar will lead the slimmed down Google. To put in simple words, he will lead all the settled projects in Google like search engine, ads, Android, Youtube, Emails, map, etc..
    Above all, now google is an affiliate of the newly found company “Alphabet” and Larry continue as the CEO of the larger holding the Alphabet. All aspiring and futuristic projects will be now handled in Alphabet and only internet related things will be with Google. Henceforth, all Google shares will be traded as shares of the larger Company “Alphabet”. Though Sundar will be the new CEO of the Google, Larry still be the prime authority for major activities happening in google like funding operations, capital management and new ventures.
    Sundar has very less role to play as the CEO of Google :(
