The idea now is to simplify management and leave the leadership of the company in the hands of Sundar Pichai, who was already CEO of Google and holds this position, accumulating with the presidency of Alphabet. The testimonial passage is made with great praise for the executive who in recent years has been showing his face for the company's options, and which is highlighted by his humility and passion.
"He has worked closely with us for the past 15 years, through the formation of Alphabet, as Google CEO and member of the Alphabet board of directors. He shares our confidence in the value of Alphabet's structure and the ability to stand up to the biggest challenges through technology. There has been no one we had trusted more since Alphabet was founded, and there is no better person to lead Google and Alphabet in the future, "they say.
Larry Page and Sergey Brin guarantee, however, that they will remain on the board of directors as active members, shareholders and co-founders, but in fact Sergey Brin was already further removed from the day-to-day operations of the company as chairman.
