Google’s Susan Wojcicki Promoted To Senior Vice President

Susan Wojcicki, the woman who rented her garage to Google’s co-founders in the early days of Google’s existence, has been promoted. Wojcicki was the Vice President, Product Management of Google’s advertising and measurement platform products, including AdWords, AdSense, DoubleClick and Google Analytics. She is now one of eight Senior Vice Presidents at Google.

I believe her job role will remain the same and this is mostly a title promotion, but a deserved one. Susan was Google’s 18th employee, as Google’s marketing manager in 1999. Then she worked on initial viral marketing programs as well as the first Google homepage doodles. In 2002 she led the Google AdSense product and advertising network until 2006. Now she is responsible for most of Google’s ad products and tracking products such as AdWords, AdSense, DoubleClick and Google Analytics.

The New York Times has some more information on the promotion.
