Sundar Pichai Biography and Net Worth

CEO of Alphabet

Pichai Sundararajan, known as Sundar Pichai, is an Indian-American business executive and CEO of Google, as well as Google’s holding company, Alphabet. He also serves on Alphabet’s Board of Directors. 

As a boy growing up in Madurai, a city in southern India, Pichai gravitated towards technology after listening to his father describe the problems he was solving as an electrical engineer. Pichai displayed an extraordinary memory of being able to recall every number dialed during the day when the family got their first rotary phone. 

After earning a degree in metallurgical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, he received a scholarship to study at Stanford University where he graduated with an M.S. in engineering and materials science in 1995. 

Pichai remained in the U.S. working briefly for semiconductor maker, Applied Materials, and completing an M.B.A. from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania where he was named a Sibel Scholar and Palmer Scholar in 2002. After a brief stint in management consulting at McKinsey & Co., he began his career at Google in 2004 as the head of project management and development. 

The future CEO was tasked with developing the Google Toolbar—the program that made the Google search engine the default option for the most popular Web browsers including Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and Mozilla’s Firefox. The toolbar’s success convinced Pichai that Google should create its own browser. After persuading its founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Pichai led the development of Google Chrome which launched in 2008 and has since become the most popular Web browser in the world with nearly 70 percent global market share. 

In the following years, Pichai began to take a more active public role and continued to rise within the company, leading the product development and innovation of Google products including Google Drive, Gmail, Google Maps, the new video format—WebM, as well as the Android operating system. Pichai also played a key role in negotiating Google’s $3.2 billion acquisition of Nest Labs in 2014. 

His success did not go unnoticed in the industry. Pichai was reportedly aggressively pursued by Twitter in 2011, and as a potential CEO for Microsoft in 2014. In 2015, following the creation of the overarching holding company, Alphabet Inc., Larry Page and Sergey Brin named Pichai CEO of Google. He became Alphabet’s CEO in 2019 after Page stepped down. 

Pichai-led Google is currently one of America’s largest conglomerates with more than 200,000 full-time and contract employees. Pichai oversees Google’s massive online advertising business—a unit that takes up nearly a third of the $130 billion U.S. digital advertising market. Alphabet serves billions of customers around the world as an Internet provider and through their YouTube video platform and hardware division. 

Pichai was named among Time's 100 Most Influential People of 2020.
