2015年Sundar Pichai 出任Google公司執行長兼董事長。Pichai 究竟是誰引發外界的關注。
Who Is Anjali Pichai?
Pichai 不使用 Instagram，也很少用 Twitter，只使用 Google+。 Pichai 作風低調，年僅四十多歲的他即便蓄鬍，外貌看起來比實際年齡年輕不少。關於川普對移民的看法，Pichai 一度表示：「不要讓恐懼擊敗我們的價值觀，我們必須支持穆斯林以及美國和世界其他的少數民族團體。」他的貼文秀出過自己欣賞的人物，如：納爾遜·曼德拉、安東尼·沙迪德、丹尼斯·裡奇、旺加裡·馬塔伊以及約翰·麥卡錫和亞倫·斯沃茨等。
皮采·桑達拉拉揚（坦米爾語：பிச்சை சுந்தரராஜன்，印地語：सुंदर पिचाई，英語：Pichai Sundararajan。1972年出生），印度裔美國電腦工程師，Google公司高級經理人，擔任過Android部門、Chrome部門與Google Apps部門的主管。 Pichai 的全名是 Pichai Sundararajan，在印度的金奈長大。父親是電氣工程師，母親做過速記員的工作。家境小康，住在一間兩居室的公寓，男孩們睡在客廳。據了解，Pichai 從小便展特有的記憶天賦，特別是數字，譬如能夠記住家裡的旋轉式電話撥過的所有號碼。
在印度理工學院坎普爾分校 (Indian Institutes of Technology Kanpur)獲得過工學學士學位（冶金工程）並被授予學院銀獎章，擁有史丹佛大學的理學碩士學位（材料科學與工程）以及賓州大學沃頓商學院的工商管理學碩士學位。拿過史丹佛的獎學金，Pichai 在印度理工學院主攻冶金工程，但後來對電腦產生興趣，開始寫軟體程序。
Pichai 在斯坦福大學拿到碩士學位，接著攻讀了賓夕法尼亞大學沃頓商學院的 MBA 項目。進入 Google 前先後任職於 Applied Materials 公司和麥肯錫公司。Pichai 於 2004 年的愚人節在 Googleplex 面試 Google 職位，這一天正好是 Google 推出 Gmail 的日子，同年他加入Google團隊，最初在 Google 的搜索工具欄工作。 為Google進行管理與創新，包括Google Chrome、Chrome OS以及他主要負責的Google 雲端硬碟。同時監督不同應用程式的開發，如Gmail和Google 地圖。
小編身為gmail的使用者，不得不說用手機綁定信箱加深安全性的做法，挺可取。雲端硬碟的發明，也是一大創新。儘管 Twitter 數字向 Pichai 提出高級職位的誘因，他仍然是堅守 Google。
被Pichai 被任命為 Google 的leader 並不意外，因為他負責公司的諸多核心產品。據了解，Pichai 說服 Larry Page 和 Sergey Brin 構建 Google 自己的瀏覽器。結果 Chrome 成為了最常用瀏覽器。作為領導者，據了解Pichai 深受員工喜愛和崇拜。他累積不少工作成就，如Pichai 推動了 Google 於 2014 年對 Nest 的 32 億美元收購案。Pichai 的薪酬高是理所當然的。據媒體報導， 2016 年 初，Pichai 從公司獲得了價值約 1.83 億美元的股票，據彭博社的數據，這是 Google 為高管開出的最高薪酬。 Pichai 的祖國視他為勵志人生的英雄，也不為過。

題外話：過去看過諸多印度的報導，對當地的治安感到憂心，因此印度被小編列為畢生不可能參訪的國家之一。但陸續看過印度電影《我和我的冠軍女兒》（Dangal）及Google CEO 「Sundar Pichai」的故事，對這個國家又多了不同以往的觀感。
