Neal Mohan joins the growing elite list of bosses across globe. He joined Google in 2007 and is set to replace Susan Wojcick.
Neal Mohan, an Indian-American, is set to become the new CEO of YouTube, taking over from Susan Wojcicki. Wojcicki announced that she will be stepping down from her position to focus on her personal life and passions. Wojcicki has been the CEO of YouTube since 2014 and was previously a senior vice president for ad products at Google.
Mohan, on the other hand, has been with Google since 2007 after the acquisition of DoubleClick. He became YouTube’s Chief Product Officer in 2015, and now he’s set to become the CEO. He has a degree in electrical engineering from Stanford University.
Mohan is joining a growing list of Indian-origin CEOs at the top of US-based global giants, including Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, Shantanu Narayen, CEO of Adobe, and Sundar Pichai, CEO of Alphabet. Indra Nooyi also served as PepsiCo’s CEO for 12 years before stepping down in 2018.
This is a significant achievement for Mohan and for the Indian-American community. It’s inspiring to see more diverse leaders rising to the top of major companies, and it shows that hard work and determination can lead to success. Mohan’s background in electrical engineering and his experience at Google and YouTube will undoubtedly serve him well in his new role as CEO.
It’s important to note that Mohan’s appointment is also significant for YouTube, which is one of the most popular social media platforms in the world. YouTube has faced criticism in recent years over issues such as misinformation, hate speech, and harassment, and Mohan will have to navigate these challenges as CEO.
Neal Mohan’s appointment as the new CEO of YouTube is a significant milestone for him, the Indian-American community, and the tech industry as a whole. We wish him all the best in his new role and hope that his leadership will bring positive change to YouTube and the wider world of social media.
