Jerry Dischler, who has been the head of Google Ads since 2020 and has been with Google for over 15 years is leaving his role within the company. Replacing Dischler will be Vidhya Srinivasan who was the VP/GM of Advertising.

Google's statement from Prabhakar Raghavan, Senior Vice President, Knowledge & Information, Google read:

After more than 15 years on Google’s ads business, Jerry Dischler decided to take on a new challenge. Our ads business helps millions of businesses thrive and we’re grateful to Jerry for his many accomplishments in this area. We’re also excited to elevate Vidhya Srinivasan, a seasoned leader with deep technical expertise who currently leads our search ads business, to lead Ads. With a track record of significant innovations across privacy, measurement, AI, search ads and beyond, Vidhya is the natural successor for this role.
