Larry Page to Become Google CEO

Everyone who uses our beloved Android also has at least some affinity towards Google. Well, a bombshell of Google news dropped today: Eric Schimdt will step aside as CEO of Google to become the Executive Chairman.

This was announced in Google’s quarterly report at the same time it was posted to the official Google blog. The company outlined the transition as follows:

  • Starting April 4, Google co-founder Larry Page will “take charge of Google’s day-to-day operations as Chief Executive Officer.”
  • Sergey Brin, the other Google co-founder, will “devote his time and energy to strategic projects,” in particular working on new products.
  • Eric Schimdt will assume the role of Executive Chairman, focusing “on the deals, partnerships, customers and broader business relationships, government outreach and technology thought leadership that are increasingly important given Google’s global reach.” He’ll also continue to advise to Page and Brin.

This is a pretty big shake up at Google HQ. What do you think of this shake up? Is it going to be good for Google? Make sure to sound off in the comments section below.

    I don’t think anything huge will change. If it does, hopefully it’s for the better.

    Love your info, but please, guys, get someone to copyedit your work. It is painful to read “shake up” when I know you really mean “shakeup.” I have been noticing a lot of splitting up of compound words lately (not just on your site), and it has be come a pet peeve :)
