Alphabet任命亨尼斯为新任董事会主席

Jonathan Vanian 2018年02月06日

一位计算机科学家接过了施密特的大印。

谷歌(Google)的母公司Alphabet上周四宣布,已经任命约翰·L·亨尼斯为董事会主席。

亨尼斯是一位资深的计算机科学家,也是2016年卸任的斯坦福大学(Stanford University)第十位校长。在谷歌的首席执行官埃里克·施密特12月底宣布自己即将卸下执行主席的职位之后,亨尼斯接过了权杖。

担任Alphabet董事长长达17年的施密特仍将留在公司的董事会,其中的成员还包括谷歌的首席执行官桑达·皮采、谷歌的云计算主管戴安·格林,以及谷歌的共同创始人拉里·佩奇和谢尔盖·布林。

施密特在12月表示:“拉里、谢尔盖、桑达和我都认为,从Alphabet的发展来看,交接的时机已到。Alphabet的结构运转良好,谷歌和其他业务都在繁荣发展。”

谷歌表示,亨尼斯在2004年4月进入Alphabet的董事会,并自2007年4月起成为公司的首席独立董事。他曾在1984年与其他人共同创立了半导体计算机公司Mips Computer Systems。这家公司于1989年上市,最后在1992年以略微超过4亿美元的价格卖给了计算公司Silicon Graphics。

在周四发布最新季度财报时,Alphabet公布了亨尼斯的新职位。

Alphabet, the parent company of Google, has appointed John L. Hennessy as its executive chairman, the company said Thursday.

Hennessy, a long-time computer scientist who was Stanford University’s tenth president before stepping down in 2016, takes over Alphabet’s board after former Google CEO Eric Schmidt said in late December that he would step down as executive chairman.

Schmidt, who was Alphabet’s chairman for 17 years, is still a member of the company’s board, which also includes Google CEO Sundar Pichai, Google’s cloud computing chief Diane Greene, and Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin.

“Larry, Sergey, Sundar and I all believe that the time is right in Alphabet’s evolution for this transition,” Schmidt said in December. “The Alphabet structure is working well, and Google and the Other Bets are thriving.”

Hennessy has been on Alphabet’s board since April 2004, and has been its lead independent director since April 2007, Google said. In 1984, he co-founded the semiconductor company Mips Computer Systems, which went public in 1989 and was eventually sold to computing company Silicon Graphics in 1992 for a little over $400 million.

Alphabet revealed Hennessy’s new position on Thursday as part of the company’s latest quarterly earnings report.

Alphabet shares fell 1.25% in after-hours trading to $1,153.10.
