Google Creates Alphabet

Larry Page and Sergey Brin, co-founders of Google, announced this week a reorganisation of the company which will make Google a division of a much bigger company called Alphabet.

Alphabet, the new parent company, will be run by Page and Brin as CEO and president respectively, and is mostly a collection of companies, the largest of which is Google. In a blog post, Page said, “This newer Google is a bit slimmed down, with the companies that are pretty far afield of our main Internet products contained in Alphabet instead”. Sundar Pichi becomes the new CEO of Google.
