Google+ Social Chief Vic Gundotra Quit The Company After 8years Job

Google’s social chief Vic Gundotra, the man primarily responsible for the Google+ social network, announced on Thursday by saying he is proud of his nearly eight year tenure with Google but that it is time for a new journey.

Gundotra, the creator and mastermind behind Google’s social network,  made the announcement, appropriately enough, in a lengthy Google Plus post, praising his co-workers and saying that he is ‘excited about what’s next.’ 

Now is the time for a new journey. A continuation,” he wrote.

Gundotra began his time at Google working on mobile apps, but then focused his energies on launching and fostering Google+, a social network whose level of success mostly lies in the eye of the beholder. Google+ has grown impressively since its 2011 to more than half a billion users. But Google’s accounting of Google+ users is controversial, since many users are not nearly as active on the social network as they are on Facebook .

Gundotra was also responsible for spearheading Google’s annual I/O conference, which brings together software developers and designers.

Gundotra did not disclose any future plans, but clearly suggested that something is in the works.

I am excited about what’s next. But this isn’t the day to talk about that. This is a day to celebrate the past 8 years. To cry. And smile. And to look forward to the journey yet to come,” he wrote.

Although Google has not formally announced who will replace Gundotra, Re/code reports that David Bresbis, Google’s vice president of engineering, will assume the role. Bresbis, formerly Google+’s engineering director, has been with Google for six years, joining the company from AOL.

Gundotra’s departure is the latest change to Google’s senior leadership team.
