Google CEO Sundar Pichai has joined the Alphabet Board of Directors, expanding the executive’s responsibility.
Pichai has been at the helm of Google since August 2015, when it was scythed off from the rest of the company’s businesses and became one of several under the Alphabet umbrella brand.
Alphabet announced its Q2 2017 financial results today.
“Sundar has been doing a great job as Google’s CEO, driving strong growth, partnerships, and tremendous product innovation,” Larry Page, CEO of Alphabet, said of the news.
“I really enjoy working with him and I’m excited that he is joining the Alphabet board.”
If you’re still confused by the Alphabet/Google structure, you’re probably not alone.
