Google's Page Reorganizes Top Level Management

Apr 11, 2011 • 8:11 am | comments (1) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google News & Finances

Google's Larry PageThe LA Times broke the news that Google's new CEO, well he was Google's original CEO but now is back at CEO, has moved some management positions around.

We covered the details at Search Engine Land and Greg Sterling asked if it would matter.

The new executives include:

  • SVP of Search - Alan Eustace
  • SVP of Advertising- Susan Wojcicki
  • SVP of Mobile/Android - Andy Rubin
  • SVP of YouTube - Salar Kamangar
  • SVP of Social - Vic Gundotra
  • SVP of Chrome - Sundar Pinchai
  • SVP of Local & Commerce - Jeff Huber

Page knows what challenges he has ahead of him and these moves, including tying bonuses to social achievements, are bold but that is what Page has to do. He is no dummy but will these moves pay off?

We blogged about Google's social aspirations in: +1 For Google Being Socially Inept see: Linking bonuses to yet another bound to be litigated social disaster is simply asking for problems. Google really should stop being afraid of the boogeyman named social. This round of social favorites soon too will fade. Attaching ones fortunes to pursuits of fads will never end in a happy story.
