Susan Wojcicki, the CEO of YouTube, is leaving the position after nine years. Chief Product Officer Neal Mohan will become the new CEO of the Google-owned business. Wojcicki took the decision to start a new chapter, which would be focused on her family, health, and passion projects, as announced in a blog post. At the request of Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google’s parent company, Alphabet, Wojcicki announced that she will take on an advisory role throughout Google and Alphabet. She notes that by doing this, she will be able to use her varied life experiences to give Google and the product lines of Alphabet companies guidance and direction.

Wojcicki, who joined Google roughly 25 years ago, was placed 16th among the original 20 employees. When she began using the internet video platform in 2014, it had recently exceeded one billion users. There are currently 2.5 billion users on it, and many YouTube producers, often known as YouTubers, have established successful businesses centered around their own channels. Wojcicki is the most well-known tech CEO to have just left a post after holding it for a long time. Her resignation follows that of Parag Agrawal, who quit his position as CEO of Twitter last year as part of a reorganization started by the new owner, Elon Musk.
