Google Finds A CFO From “Old Media”
Google has finally filled the CFO spot being vacated by George Reyes, the outgoing CFO who has been with the company since roughly 2002 (pre-IPO). The new CFO (and SVP) is Patrick Pichette, who was President of Operations at Bell Canada.
He will report directly to Google CEO Eric Schmidt. There are likely dramatic cultural differences between Pichette’s old firm and his new employer. In keeping with Google’s preference for high GPAs and award winners, Pichette was a Rhodes Scholar.
Here are some apparent details on his package and compensation.
