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.
