Larry says “I feel very fortunate to have someone as talented as he is to run the slightly slimmed down Google and this frees up time for me to continue to scale our aspirations. I have been spending quite a bit of time with Sundar, helping him and the company in any way I can, and I will of course continue to do that. Google itself is also making all sorts of new products, and I know Sundar will always be focused on innovation — continuing to stretch boundaries. I know he deeply cares that we can continue to make big strides on our core mission to organize the world’s information.”

Sundar was the Senior Vice President of Google Android, Chrome and Apps.

Before joining Google, Pichai worked as an engineer at manufacturer Applied Materials, followed by a stint in management consulting at McKinsey & Company, according to Business Insider.

Pichai belongs to Chennai, Tamil Nadu and is a graduate from IIT Kharagpur.

He also has a degree of M.Sc (Masters in Science) from Stanford University and Master of Business Administration from the Wharton School of University of Pennsylvania.
