CEO

Pichai declared in March 2020 that Google would not sell any personal information to third parties, but he didn’t rule out giving it away to serve the global good with things like its COVID-19 contact-tracing tech, developed in partnership with Apple. Nonetheless, the move drew fire from critics. In June, Pichai made another effort to assuage privacy concerns, announcing that, going forward, location history, search, voice, and YouTube activity would be automatically deleted after 18 months. He also committed $175 million of Google’s money to racial equality initiatives, including the establishment of a $100 million fund supporting Black-led startups and VCs, and spoke out against President Trump’s temporary halt of issuing HB-1 visas used by many foreign tech workers in the U.S.
