Google CEO Sundar Pichai has joined the board Google’s parent company Alphabet, the company said Monday .
“Sundar has been doing a great job as Googles CEO, driving strong growth, partnerships, and tremendous product innovation. I really enjoy working with him and I am excited that he is joining the Alphabet board,” Larry Page, CEO of California-based US multinational conglomerate Alphabet, said in a statement yesterday.
A long-time Google employee, 45-year-old Pichai, an IIT Kharagpur alumnus born in Chennai, has been leading the company for the past two years.
As Googles Chief Executive Officer, he is responsible for Googles product development and technology strategy, as well as the companys day-to-day-operations.
Pichai joined Google in 2004 and helped lead the development of key consumer products which are now used by over a billion people.
In 2014, he took over product, engineering, and research efforts for all of Googles products and platforms.
After years of working closely with Googles co-founders, Page and Sergey Brin, he became Googles CEO in August 2015.
Under Pichai, Google has boosted sales from its core advertising and YouTube business, while also investing in machine learning, hardware and cloud computing. PTI CPS DK
