Google’s CEO, Sundar Pichai, has resigned from his position as chief executive, effective immediately.
Pichais decision comes amid a massive culture and product overhaul at the company.
In an internal memo, Pichiais stated that Google “has been made worse by a culture of incompetence and indifference to customers” and that he will resign effective immediately at the end of the year.
The memo also noted that Google was “deeply sorry” for the company’s decision to cut ties with Pichay.
“We have made the right decision and I am leaving in a spirit of mutual respect and regret,” Pichy wrote.
“I will do everything I can to ensure that this experience does not repeat itself.
We owe it to our users to do the right thing and not let the past cloud our future.”
Pichais departure comes just over two weeks after he was appointed to replace the departing Mark Zuckerberg.
PICHI’S NEW CHIEF executive leadership, which was announced in October, has come under fire for its failure to provide customers with the information they want from Google.
A report from Reuters showed that a majority of users who requested an update to their Google search engine before the end the year were not getting it.
The company’s top executives also failed to inform customers that they were getting an upgrade to the Android platform, which Google’s new CEO announced earlier this month.
Google’s response has been to offer new tools and services for the service, such as “improved search” that allow users to narrow search results based on topics they want.
It has also been criticized for the way it handles issues like the rise of fake news.
Earlier this month, Google said it was working to get more people on board with its search engine, as the company has seen a rise in traffic and advertising for its new services.
