Con una lettera pubblicata sul Google Blog, i fondatori di Google Larry Page e Sergey Brin hanno annunciato le loro dimissioni dai loro ruoli di CEO e presidente di Alphabet lasciando le redini a Sundar Pichai, rimanendo però all'interno del consiglio di amministrazione.
Ecco il testo chiave delle loro dimissioni:
While it has been a tremendous privilege to be deeply involved in the day-to-day management of the company for so long, we believe it’s time to assume the role of proud parents—offering advice and love, but not daily nagging!
With Alphabet now well-established, and Google and the Other Bets operating effectively as independent companies, it’s the natural time to simplify our management structure. We’ve never been ones to hold on to management roles when we think there’s a better way to run the company. And Alphabet and Google no longer need two CEOs and a President.
Going forward, Sundar will be the CEO of both Google and Alphabet. He will be the executive responsible and accountable for leading Google, and managing Alphabet’s investment in our portfolio of Other Bets.
We are deeply committed to Google and Alphabet for the long term, and will remain actively involved as Board members, shareholders and co-founders. In addition, we plan to continue talking with Sundar regularly, especially on topics we’re passionate about!
