MADRID, 17 Feb. (EUROPA PRESS) -
YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki has announced her decision to step down as CEO of the Alphabet video platform she had held for nine years.

In this sense, Wojcicki herself has announced that Neal Mohan will be the one to occupy the position of CEO of YouTube, adding that, in the short term, he will lend his support to his successor and help with the transition, including working with some teams from YouTube, train team members and meet with creators.
In the longer term, the executive has indicated that she has reached an agreement with Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai to assume an advisory role at Google and Alphabet.
"This will allow me to draw on my different experiences over the years to offer advice and guidance at Google and the Alphabet portfolio of companies," he stressed.
