Six Google Executives Promoted to Senior Vice President Positions

Larry Page is recently appointed as the new Google CEO and has already promoted six executives to senior vice president positions. We are not protesting, well… some other executives might be. This step is taken to divide the company in six independent business units to make Google leaner, less bureaucratic, and last but not the least, innovative.

Meet the New Team

Alan Eustace Senior Vice President of Search

Vic Gundotra Senior Vice President of Social

Salar KamangarSenior Vice President of YouTube and Video

Sundar PichaiSenior Vice President of Chrome

Andy RubinSenior Vice President of Mobile

Susan WojcickiSenior Vice President of Ads

According to LA Times, all the Senior Presidents will be given greater authority and autonomy over their respective business units.

These promotions somehow fill the position which will vacant after the departure of Jonathan Rosenberg, who will be leaving the company this summer. The new teams joins existing SVPs Nikesh Arora (Chief Business Officer), Shona Brown (Business Operations), David Drummond (Corporate Development and Chief Legal Officer) and Patrick Pichette (CFO).

Though, Google is in good shape but Larry Page who is also the co-founder of Google wants to extract the best out of it. Also with the rise of Facebook and failure of Google social media attempts including the latest Google Buzz, Google will now be determining the bonuses of employees by the success of its social media initiatives.

It is also very surprising that some prominent executives and divisions did not get promotions. One such name is Marissa Mayer, Google’s VP of location and local services and the former VP of search products and user experience.
