Larry Page, one of the co-founders of Google, has made some major changes to management ranks at the Internet search giant. The Los Angeles Times reports that Page promoted seven executives from the company to run various divisions within it. That being said, the move was said to make an effort to “restore the sense of urgency and innovation that drove Google’s prior success.”
Andy Rubin, who is in charge of Android mobile phone software; Salar Kamangar, who runs YouTube and videos; Sundar Pichai, head of the Chrome Web Browser and operating system; and Vic Gundotra, who is in charge of Google’s social networking strategy, are all being promoted to Senior VP roles. Existing Senior VPs, meanwhile, will take over various departments throughout the company. All these changes are being made to bolster performance in parts of Google’s business that has seen little growth.
