Google Chief Executive Sundar Pichai was named CEO of Google's parent company, Alphabet Inc.
Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin said in a letter on Google's website that it is a "natural time to simplify our management structure" and that Google and its parent "no longer need two CEOs and a President."
The change is effective immediately.
Mr. Pichai was named CEO of Google in 2015. He's been with Google since 2004.
