Google has been handing more and more power to the widely popular Indian-born Google executive - Sunder Pichai. CEO Larry Page of the multi Billion dollar search engine giant has been bestowing unto him a great deal of products.
So far, Sunder Pichai was only responsible for Chrome, which he launched and turned into a major success. Then he picked up Google Apps and Android, again both are intensely popular today.
On Friday, the Influential executive was also handed few more products to look after at Google. So the new areas that Pichai will be now guiding are the maps, searches, Google+, commerce, ads and infrastructure. He will, here on, direct executives in charge of these products.
Wondering what Page will be doing than? The CEO will continue to oversee Google's business segment, including ad sales. Moreover, he will also keep responsibility for YouTube, Google's access and energy division - which includes its high-speed Internet service Google Fiber - as well as Google X, Nest and various corporate functions including the company's deal teams.
Page has been telling staff that he wanted to free himself from routine chores, with so many executives reporting to him, to focus on the "bigger picture".
The Chennai-born Pichai who got educated at IIT Kharagpur in the past was also offered job by Twitter as a senior products position. However, he refused it, for the good, evidently.
