Wojcicki

CEO

Under Wojcicki’s watch, YouTube now garners more than 1.9 billion logged-in users every month. She has spearheaded a diversification of the media kingpin’s business models, launching YouTube TV streaming service in 2017 and, in 2018, relaunching efforts to take on Spotify under the YouTube Music banner.
