Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin on Tuesday announced that they are stepping down from the leadership role of Alphabet and that Sundar Pichai will replace Page as the CEO of the parent company. Pichai will continue to be the CEO of Google.
"Going forward, Sundar will be the CEO of both Google and Alphabet... There is no one that we have relied on more since Alphabet was founded, and no better person to lead Google and Alphabet into the future," read a letter that founders Page and Brin wrote to employees on Tuesday.
While we all know Pichai for his poised demeanour, simplicity and dedication towards work, did you know, like most Indians, Pichai too loves cricket? In fact, not just cricket, he is a fan of soccer too. In a rapid-fire round in 2017, when Pichai revisited IIT Kharagpur, he opened up about bunking classes, college romance and much more.
