Google chief executive Larry Page is stepping back at the giant technology company, while senior vice president Sundar Pichai will be assuming more responsibility, according to a new report.
Pichai, head of Android, Chrome and Apps at Google, will become head of core Google products according to a report today from Re/code, citing unnamed sources.
Google declined to comment for this story.
Pichai will take over Google Research, web search, Google Maps, Google+, advertising, commerce, and the company’s growing infrastructure, although his title won’t change, and he’ll still report to Page, the report said.
Page, for his part, will still head up operations and business. Nest and Google X, among other units, will also remain under him following the shake-up.
