Google's George Reyes To Retire As CFO

  • August 29, 2007
Google announced that George Reyes has informed the company of his intention to retire as chief financial officer. Reyes, who has worked at Google for 5.5 years, indicated that he will remain to assist in the search for a new CFO and to assure an orderly transition, which Google expects will occur by the end of the year.

"I've known and admired George since our days together at Sun," said Google Chairman and CEO Eric Schmidt. "As Google's CFO, George successfully navigated our innovative IPO, the regulatory demands of Sarbanes-Oxley, and the management challenges of scaling a global finance organization. Though we fully appreciate his decision to step back from active management, we'll miss his thoughtfulness, good humor and wisdom."
