One of Google's ace executive official Vivek 'Vic' Gundotra, who was responsible for the creation of the company's most widely used social networking platform the Google+ yesteday announced his resignation.
After serving close to eight years in the US-based search engine giant's office, Vic Gundotra cordially announced his departure in a post Thursday via the Google Plus. He was occupying the seat of the company's senior vice president for social networking site. However, Gundotra, who is a graduate from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Madras didn't talk about the reasons behind leaving the Mountain View-based internet giant. Before joining Google in 2006, he spent 15 years at Microsoft as well.
Via the Google+ post, he wrote, "I am excited about what's next," Gundotra wrote. "But this isn't the day to talk about that. This is a day to celebrate the past eight years. To cry. And smile. And to look forward to the journey yet to come."
And in reply to his post, Google CEO Larry Page reverted him by praising Gundotra in his own post. He wrote, "Then you built Google+ from nothing. There are few people with the courage and ability to start something like that and I am very grateful for all your hard work and passion."
All the comments that Gundotra received on his post on the social site were full of positive feedbacks and gratefulness. Although Google Plus is still less than half the size of Facebook, the maker behind it joyously announced his departure in a sentimental way sharing a bit of a story which you can check here.
In case you are wondering who will take Vic Gundotra's position now, Google has not announced any name of the possible candidate.
