I look forward to working with Larry and Sergey on our future here at Alphabet.Schmidt discusses running the company, how the Google culture changed his views of leadership and advances at the company that may change the future.These include big names such as former Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe, as well as celebrity guest editors such as Pharrell and Dr Dre.A source told that Schmidt’s stepping down has been in the works for roughly a year.“Continuing his 17 years of service to the company, he’ll now be helping us as a technical advisor on science and technology issues,” Larry Page, Google’s co-founder and now CEO of Alphabet, said in a press release.A decade later, he would become executive chairman of Google and continued to hold the role when the company underwent a corporate restructure to create Alphabet in 2015.
Joe Beda, chief technology officer of technology firm Heptio and a former Google employee, said: "He helped them mature into the powerhouse business it is today without throwing away the uniqueness that was Google during those early days."The creation of Alphabet also lead to Mr Schmidt becoming chairman of the parent company.
Schmidt will remain on Alphabet's board of directors, but only as a technical adviser on "science and technology" issues.
In the announcing the shift, Schmidt said that he'd been focusing on those issues a lot in recent years and now plans to pursue that work in greater depth.
He is seen as a key player in developing Google from a small start-up in California to the global business it is today.
Mr Schmidt first joined Google as CEO back in 2001 when the company only had several hundred employees.
The business will join Apple and Microsoft who are both huge companies with a non-executive chairman.
