Vic Gundotra, Google’s SVP of Engineering, decides to depart the company for ‘a new journey’


Vic Gundotra, Senior Vice President of Engineering at Google, has decided to depart the company.

The news was first announced today via Recode, but on Gundotra’s Google+ account he stated a very personal message that began with a death in the family and that “I have been incredibly fortunate to work with the amazing people of Google. I don’t believe there is a more talented and passionate collection of people anywhere else.”

Gundotra worked at Google for 8 years and was responsible for starting the annual Google I/O conference, but more importantly led the rush to put Google social with Google+. There is no word on where Gundotra is heading, or if he’ll be joining another company at all, only noting that “now is the time for a new journey. A continuation.”

Hugo Barra, previously Android’s VP, also recently departed Google to go work for the Xiaomi, which is considered to be the “Apple of China.”
