谷歌上市敲钟元老今何在?

Miguel Helft,Andrew Nusca 2014年08月21日

十年前,谷歌高管团队在纽约敲响了纳斯达克的钟声,成功带领公司上市。时光荏苒,昔日的元老们今日何在?

    谷歌创投(Google Ventures)普通合伙人戴维•克莱恩8月19日在Twitter上写道:“这是10年前的今年。我永远无法忘记的一天……”

    他所说的正是上面我们看到的那张图,那是2004年8月19日,谷歌高管团队准备在纽约敲响纳斯达克(Nasdaq)开市钟时的合影。正如《财富》杂志(Fortune)另一篇报道中所写的那样,那时的谷歌还是一家小公司,公司业务比现在小得多,更没有如此巨额的收入,员工人数也只有如今的百分之五。

    谷歌上市当天,登台的人数甚至不到当时公司总人数的1%,但其中许多人对于公司早期的成功发挥了重要作用。下面是照片中各位人物的介绍,他们在2004年谷歌上市当天的角色,以及他们的现状。

    莫娜•朱——时任谷歌SEC申报与技术会计总监;现状未知(根据其在LinkedIn上的资料,她已于2013年6月离开谷歌。)

    身份不明的高管

    马克•福克斯——时任谷歌财务副总裁兼总会计师;现状未知。

    彼得罗•多瓦——时任谷歌公司控制官兼财务总监;现任风险投资公司XG Ventures创始合伙人(与原谷歌员工安德里亚•祖瑞克合作)。

    梅丽莎•梅耶尔——时任谷歌消费者网络产品总监;现任雅虎(Yahoo)总裁兼首席执行官。

    道格拉斯•梅里尔——时任谷歌首席信息官(他将非常复杂的多银行“各自付费”拍卖系统进行了成功整合);现任金融公司ZestFinance创始人兼首席执行官。

    “This,” wrote the Google Ventures general partner David Krane yesterday on Twitter. “10 years ago, today. A day I’ll never forget…”

    The object in question was the photo-of-a-photo seen above, of Google executives preparing to ring the opening bell of Nasdaq in New York on August 19, 2004. As Fortune wrote yesterday, Google was a much smaller company then. It was involved in far fewer businesses, had dramatically less revenue, and employed just five percent of the people it does today.

    The people on stage for Google’s initial public offering that day didn’t even represent 1% of the company’s employees at the time, but many of them were important to the company’s early success. Below, a list of who those people are, what role they played on that day in 2004, and where they are today.

    Unknown Nasdaq executive
