Google’s Founders & CEO Promised To Work Together Until 2024
Google CEO, Co-Founders Made Long-Term Promise from the Wall Street Journal reports Google’s founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, and Google’s CEO, Eric Schmidt, said they would work together until the year 2024.
Google spokesperson Jon Murchinson told the Wall Street Journal that the “informal pact” between the three top Googlers was made one month before the Google IPO in August 2004. The pact was that they would all work at the company for “at least 20 years.” This pact adds to the feeling that the company culture at Google is not about cashing out, at least not for Page, Brin, and Schmidt, although other Googlers have taken their winnings and moved on to other things.
