Google has never been one of the conventional tech companies we keep hearing about all the time. After massive restructuring in 2015, the company is again changing its leadership structure as its original co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin bid adieu to the control they held over Alphabet, Google’s parent company. The current CEO of the company, Sundar Pichai will be taking over, while the co-founders will still remain as an employee and retain their board seats.
An open letter from Larry and Sergey
The departure of Google co-founders doesn’t really come as a surprise for those who are up to date with what’s happening with the company. Ever since Alphabet was formed, Page and Brin have been actively involved with the company but their public appearances were rather limited. As the CEO, Sundar Pichai became the public face of the company and went on to run the company and represent it in times of turmoil.
