Looking for a new job? Amit Singhal, Alphabet/Google’s senior vice president of search is retiring. This interesting news came to us from Seeking Alpha in their article, “Google’s search chief leaving; shares sell off day after post-earnings gains.”

Singhal’s last day is scheduled to be February 26, 2016. John Giannandrea, an engineering vice president currently in charge of Google’s A.I./machine learning efforts has apparently been tapped to replace Singhal. Search isn’t the only part or even the largest part of Google anymore, but it is the biggest profit creator for the technology giant.

In Singhal’s farewell message, he states, “Now is a good time to make this important life change. Things are in amazing shape. Search is stronger than ever, and will only get better in the hands of an outstanding set of senior leaders who are already running the show day-to-day.”
