Netizens of my generation will certainly agree that Google is the number 1 search engine. Being on that spot proves that Google is a big corporation expanding to the world both hardware and software — from browsers, to applications, and Android devices. If you have watched the movie, The Internship — starring Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, you will probably have an idea of the creative and dynamic environment in the Google workspace.
Diversity and multi-raciality, being one of their core values, it comes to no surprise for Google co-founders, Larry Page and Sergy Brin, to promote an Indian-born engineer, Sundar Pichai. Don’t get me wrong. Being Indian is not the only card under his sleeves. He has the appropriate qualifications why he deserves the position.
Speaking of credentials, Sundar Pichai graduated a bachelor’s degree in engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur. Afterwards, he earned his MSc from Stanford University and an MBA from the University of Pennsylvania. Being an authority of both technology and business, he easily landed a spot at McKinsey & Company. In 2004, we worked for Google and introduced a number of things in the company’s achievements.
The notable contributions of Pichai in Google would be the development of Google Chrome and Google OS. He also pioneered the use of Gmail and Google Maps. You cannot simply imagine Google today without these vital features.
Pichai replaced Andy Rubin as head of Android last 2013 and promoted again last 2014 as the product chief. According to rumors, he was supposedly proposed to be Microsoft’s CEO but he opted to stay in Google. Perhaps, his loyalty for 6 years of serving in Google prompted him with the present position.
He gained so much trust from Larry Page due to his performance. His co-workers in Google too affirms that Pichai establishes rapport in their human resource by facilitating consensus rather than conflict.
