|Google Hires New CFO: Patrick Pichette|
| 3:37 am on Jun 26, 2008 (gmt 0)|
|For a company that made its name in search, Google sure took its time finding a new chief financial officer, telecommunications executive Patrick Pichette. |
Pichette succeeds George Reyes, who shepherded Google through its 2004 initial public offering and announced in August that he would leave the Internet giant.
The search is over: Google has a new CFO [latimesblogs.latimes.com]
|"It took over a year to find George," he (Schmidt) added. |
Said Google co-founder Larry Page: "We're picky."

What exactly do they look in hiring such a person? Must be more of a trust issue.

Very hard to find talent at that level.

I think that the late George Carlin was right in his point regarding language and the way it seems to get more odd over time - VP, People Operations?
Make one wonder what the next fluffier term du jour for the function might be...

This is not a fluffier term du jour, but perhaps one more readily understood by some....
VP, Assimilating Human Species Into The Collective.
