“In my clear opinion, Larry is ready to lead and I’m excited about working with both him and Sergey [Brin] for a long time to come,”

Larry Page left his chief executive position when investors asked for a more experienced business leader. According to Schmidt, Larry will now lead product development and technology strategy, his greatest strengths, and starting from April 4 he will take charge of our day-to-day operations as Google’s Chief Executive Officer.

While, Google’s co-founder “Sergey Brin has decided to devote his time and energy to strategic projects, in particular working on new products. His title will be Co-Founder.”

The changes will take effect on April 4 of this year.

Schmidt ended his announcement with

We are confident that this focus will serve Google and our users well in the future. Larry, Sergey and I have worked exceptionally closely together for over a decade—and we anticipate working together for a long time to come….

We love Google—our people, our products and most of all the opportunity we have to improve the lives of millions of people around the world.
