Amid the Alphabet-Google news last week, one major change went unnoticed: Google has a new sales chief, Philipp Schindler.
Mr. Schindler succeeds Omid Kordestani, Google’s chief business officer and a close confidant of Google co-founder Larry Page. Mr. Kordestani is departing as Mr. Page vacates his Google CEO post to run Google’s new parent company Alphabet.
Mr. Schindler's new role puts him in charge of Google’s more than 15,000-person sales organization, which has become more complex and challenged as the company matures.
