Google, Alphabet founders step down, Pichai now CEO of both companies

Before today, Larry Page and Sergey Brin were CEO and President of Alphabet - now that job goes to the CEO of Google. There will be no President role for Alphabet (for the moment, at least), and Pichai will be CEO of both Google and Alphabet.

Wells Fargo accounts drained as former CEO calls Bitcoin a pyramid scheme

Former Wells Fargo CEO called Bitcoin a pyramid scheme this week on CNBC's Squawk on the Street.

Uber formally names Expedia’s Dara Khosrowshahi as new CEO

The search for the next chief is over. For Uber that is. Confirming what the press has known all along, the embattled ride-sharing company has indeed named Dara Khosrowshahi as its new chief executive officer, which does now leave Expedia without a CEO.

The Taiwanese OEM has just announced that, effective immediately, Ms. Cher Wang will be the company's new chief executive, bring perhaps hopes of a revived HTC.
