Starting today, tech giant Google Inc. was officially designated as being a subsidiary of the Alphabet Holding Company. Google inaugurates the new status quo by appointing Sundar Pichai as the new CEO. As he takes the mantle on his shoulders, Pichai makes major restructuration at Google.
Pichai’s first action as acting Senior Vice President at Google, was to appoint Hiroshi Lockheimer, the overseer for Chrome and Android OS development as Senior Vice President in charge of handling the operation for Android, Chrome and Chromecast.
The freshly appointed Senior Vice President aims to make the corporate giant more profitable, and he started out by making even more appointments. Among his list of favorite candidates, we can see David Burke, the Vice President of the Android division, Neal Mohan and, of course, Philip Shindler.
Neal Mohan, one of Pichai’ favorite will take rein of Mountain’s View display and video advertisement division as Senior Vice President. In the past, Mohan was involved in Google’s videos and YouTube branch, since the corporate giant acquired DoubleClick Company in 2007. Together with Phillip Shindler, the newly appointed senior vice president of Global Sales and Operations, Mohan has decided to expand an further enhance Google’s end user experience for display and video business.
Getting back to Pichai’ number one favorite, Hiroshi Lockheimer, before his commission as SVP for Android, Chrome and Chromecast, he distinguished himself over the years as supervisor for Android’s endeavor of integrating apps into motorcars and expanding the life span of individual devices.
Alphabet Inc. is what we call a conglomerate company that formed in the early 2014. It is considered the parent company of Google. Its portfolio is more than impressive: Alphabet conglomerate engulfs many industries such as technology, life sciences and research.
Alphabet’s cofounders declared that their desire to establish this company was due to the fact that there were a lot of complaints regarding Google’s internet services for small businesses. The creators wanted to be able to deliver “clear and more accountable” internet services to entrepreneurs and to offer them a much larger autonomy than any other internet based services.
Based on Pichai’ statements, these will not be the only changes that he plans to operate inside Google headquarters. He promised the general public and especially his customers that his moves are based on the fact that he wishes to greatly improve Google’s core services.
