Larry Page is the head of the world’s most important Internet company, Google.Page ran Google alongside co-founder Sergey Brin up until 2001 when Eric Schmidt came on board to serve as chairman and CEO.
Last year, Schmidt stepped down to become executive chairman of the company, while Page assumed the role of CEO at Google.
How’d Page take Google to such great heights? Where’s he taking it next?
'My job as a leader is to make sure everybody in the company has great opportunities, and that they feel they're having a meaningful impact and are contributing to the good of society. As a world, we're doing a better job of that. My goal is for Google to lead, not follow that.'
'It's important that the company be a family, that people feel that they're part of the company, and that the company is like a family to them. When you treat people that way, you get better productivity.'
'We want to build technology that everybody loves using, and that affects everyone. We want to create beautiful, intuitive services and technologies that are so incredibly useful that people use them twice a day. Like they use a toothbrush. There aren't that many things people use twice a day.'
