Product Chief

Google

In his role as Product Chief of Google, Pichai led the product management and innovation efforts for a suite of Google’s client software products, including Google Chrome and Chrome OS, as well as being largely responsible for Google Drive. He went on to oversee the development of different applications such as Gmail and Google Maps. He was appointed to his current position as the company’s CEO in 2015. He holds an M.S. from Stanford University in material sciences and engineering, and an MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

As Google loves all data-rich environments and as the battle for real estate search, sharing and lifestyle review intensifies it appears to be only logical that it will expand into the real estate industry in the foreseeable future. The company has had a well-staffed real estate research program for a number of years and it is highly likely that Google will play a key role in the real estate space.
