    Sundar Pichai has moved up in the ranks at Google again. Pichai is now the new lead for nearly all of Google's Core products. Basically, CEO Larry Page is transferring leadership to Pichai for the following products/teams: research, search, maps, Google+, commerce and ad products and infrastructure. Of course, he will still be the head of Android, Chrome and Google Apps as well. The only Google product he will not be heading up will be YouTube. Six executives in charge of newly added product areas will now report to Pichai instead of Larry Page.


    YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki will continue reporting to Page. Here's a quote explaining why Page chose to make this move,

    It's not surprising to see a bit of restructuring at Google as they continue to grow and expand into new products and services. For now it seems Pichai is expected to help smooth out these growing pains, and that this promotion is a reward for long-time loyalty to the company.

    Too many eggs in one basket. They sure put a lot of trust in this one person.
