Gokul Rajaram, a high-ranking Google product manager who helped launch one of the search giantís most profitable ventures has left to start his own company.

[...]

Whatever venture he pursues, he has the blessings of top Google (GOOG) brass Eric Schmidt and Sergey Brin. Product management vice president Susan Wojcicki honored him with a large plaque signed by a few hundred Googlers at his farewell party at the Googleplex in Mountain View, Calif., two weeks ago.

At the end of the day, according to the Aussie article below, it seems that Gokul Rajaram could have just been a product manager whose team was responsible for integrating the Adsense technology developed by Rex Wong and his company Applied Semantics, which Google bought in 2003.

just been a product manager

just a project manager... that grew the department into a monster. I think that takes some real talent, and his $50M take is a good indicator that he's more than just your ordinary project manager... he's SUPER PM! :)
