Posted Apr 24, 2014

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) executive Vic Gundotra has announced that he is leaving the company after working there for eight years. It is unknown where he is heading next. Gundotra said he is “looking forward to the journey yet to come.”

“I have been incredibly fortunate to work with the amazing people of Google. I don?t believe there is a more talented and passionate collection of people anywhere else,” said Gundotra in an announcement today. “And I?m overwhelmed when I think about the leadership of Larry Page and what he empowered me to do while at Google. From starting Google I/O, to being responsible for all mobile applications, to creating Google+, none of this would have happened without Larry?s encouragement and support.”

Google CEO Larry Page praised Gundotra for building “Google+ from nothing.”

Page said that Google will continue to invest in Google+ even though the project list its biggest leader.
