A Google that has morphed and become the part of a large entity called Alphabet.
Sundar Pichai New CEO of Google:-
Sundar Pichai also known as (Pichai Sundararajan) was born in 1972 and grew up in Chennai. Sundar was the chief at Google Inc. but now Sundar Pichai was announced as the next CEO of Google on August 10, 2015. Pichai’s father was an engineer with GEC. Pichai earned his degree from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur in Metallurgical Engineering. Sundar was recommended by his professors at IIT to pursue Ph. D at Stanford University. He has also completed his M.S. and MBA instead. Before he joined Google, Pichai worked in engineering and product management at Applied Materials and in management consulting at McKinsey & Company.
Sundar Pichai was a Director of Jive Software from April 2011 to 30 July 2013. Pichai joined Google in 2004 and was the driving force behind Google Chrome Browser and the Chrome OS. Initially, Pichai started with handling the Google search toolbar in the upper right corner of Web browsers, well before the launch of Google’s own browser. This was the time when Microsoft’s Internet Explorer was still dominant across the world. The success of the Google Toolbar was what helped build his reputation at the company. But the biggest responsibility was that Pichai was Android in 2013 when he replaced Andy Rubin, the man who developed the platform. Pichai continued to be in charge of Chrome as well.
One of his college professors Mr. Pichai was doing work in the field of electronics at a time when no separate course on electronics existed in our curriculum. Google founders recognised that Pichai was a man on an evangelical type mission for pushing the boundaries of technology.
Mr. Pichai most eloquently outlined this mission when he said, “For me, it matters that we drive technology as an equalising force, as an enabler for everyone around the world. Which is why I do want Google to see, push, and invest more in making sure computing is more accessible, connectivity is more accessible.”
Prime Minister Narendra Modi also congratulated Mr. Pichai on his appointment as Google CEO.
