With Google CEO Sundar Pichai stepping down from his position at the search giant, and current CEO Larry Page taking over as interim CEO, many people are looking to see who the next big name for Google will be. Among those people is Susan Wojcicki, who has been with Google since 2004 and served as Senior Vice President of Marketing from 2011 until she was appointed Chief Marketing Officer in 2013. Wojcicki is known for her work on behalf of Google’s web properties and consumer products divisions, most notably her role in creating the foundation for Google’s advertising business. She has also been outspoken about the need for more women in leadership positions, writing an article for Forbes earlier this year entitled “Why More Women In Top Leadership Positions Is Crucial To The Future Of Tech”. In this interview with CNBC, Wojcicki discusses her thoughts on the current state of Google and the industry at large, as well as what she expects from Page in his interim role.

President-elect Donald Trump has had a busy week since his stunning victory over Hillary Clinton. He’s been meeting with world leaders and preparing for his inauguration on January 20th. But before all that, he has some final tasks to complete, including picking a Cabinet and creating his own media empire.
According to NBC News, Trump is considering several people for top positions in his administration, including former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as Secretary of State. Bloomberg would be the first openly-gay person to hold such a high position in the U.S. government.
Trump is also considering Stephen Bannon, CEO of Breitbart Media LLC, as his chief strategist and senior counselor. Bannon is known for promoting fiercely pro-Trump news coverage. And Rex Tillerson, chairman and CEO of ExxonMobil Corporation, may be nominated for Secretary of State.
If chosen, Tillerson would break with many of President Obama’s policies on climate change and international affairs. In addition to running ExxonMobil, Tillerson is also the chairman and president of The Pegasus Group LLC – a business investment firm with interests in oil drilling operations around the world.
The Pros and Cons of a Susana Wojcicki Presidency at NBC
Susana Wojcicki is the current CEO of NBCUniversal, and if she is chosen to be the next president of the company, she would take over from Steve Burke. Here are the pros and cons of a Susana Wojcicki presidency at NBC.
-Wojcicki has a strong business background, having worked at Google and then became CEO of Yahoo! in 2013. As CEO of NBCUniversal, she would have overall responsibility for all the company’s businesses, including its television networks (NBC, MSNBC, CNBC), cable networks (USA Network, Bravo, Syfy), film studio (Universal Pictures), publishing division (HarperCollins), music label (Warner Music Group), among others.
-Her leadership style is collaborative and empowering, says a Yahoo! employee who worked under Wojcicki. She values feedback.
-Wojcicki is bilingual (she speaks Spanish as well as English). This could give her an advantage in dealing with Trump, who is also fluent in Spanish.
-Although Wojcicki has a strong business background, she has no experience running a TV network or a major media company. Her understanding of television programming may not be enough to lead NBCUniversal through difficult times – for example, during a ratings slump – or to make strategic decisions
Susan Wojcicki, the CEO of Google’s parent company Alphabet, will soon be joining President-elect Donald Trump’s team as his Chief Executive Officer. This is a big move for Silicon Valley and could mean big changes for Google and other tech giants in the near future.
