Senior Vice President, Android, Chrome & Apps

Already head of Google’s Chrome efforts, Sundar Pichai has quite recently been thrust onto a bigger stage after the sudden departure of Andy Rubin as head of the search giant’s Android unit. Taking over the key mobile unit, Pichai oversees product management, engineering and innovation efforts, and is also responsible for a range of other Google products, including Gmail, Google Drive and Google Apps. Pichai joined Google in 2004, and helped lead the development of Google Toolbar and Google Chrome. Before joining Google, he held positions at Applied Materials and McKinsey & Company.
