Since Google completely overhauled its corporate structure, announcing that Larry Page would become the CEO of a new parent company called Alphabet, Sundar Pichai is more important than ever.
As the CEO of the new, smaller Google, he’s got a big pack of direct reports, which will likely shift a bit as the dust settles and execs vie for new responsibilities.
But for now, here’s a quick look at who reports directly to Pichai, based partly on reporting of Amir Efrati at The Information.
(We understand that this isn’t a complete list, so if you know of anyone we missed, let us know!)
Clay Bavor, VP for Google Apps
Bavor initially joined Google in 2005 on the ads team. Right now, he tackles product management and user-experience design for Google’s consumer and enterprise apps, including Gmail, Drive, Docs, as well as Google’s Apps for business and education.
He also helped design Google Cardboard, the company’s simple virtual-reality device, according to his Twitter profile. (The Wall Street Journal reports that he’s actually leading that project.)
Google work aside, Bavor is an amazing photographer and has created an Abraham Lincoln portrait out of pennies.
Hiroshi Lockheimer, VP of engineering for Android and Chrome OS
Lockheimer has led management and engineering efforts for Android since he joined Google in 2006 — two years before the official launch of Android 1.0 and the first Android-powered device in 2008. He added Chrome OS to his engineering responsibilities in 2014.
One of his responsibilities will be making sure the two play nice together.
(When the company announced its Lollipop OS earlier this year, Business Insider interviewed Lockheimer about how Android has evolved over the years — check out what he had to say here.)
