Google Inc has named co-founder Larry Page as the CEO of the company with effect from April 4, 2011. Back in January 2011, Google had announced plans to streamline decision making and create clearer lines of responsibility and accountability at the top of the company, while the current CEO Eric Schmidt will assume the role of executive chairman.

Larry Page, who as a graduate student paired up with Sergey Brin to create the algorithm that launched Google’s search engine to Web stardom, has yet to make his battle plan public. But industry insiders and analysts expect he will try to shore up Google’s strength in search and mobile, while breaking into a hot social networking market that has eluded his company.

However, Page’s first official day on the job was also marked by the resignation of Google’s senior vice president of product management, Jonathan Rosenberg. A Google spokesperson issued a statement saying that Rosenberg had planned to leave the company in the next year or two as his children reached college age, but decided it was appropriate to do so now since he could not commit to being part of the team for any significant amount of time going forward. Rosenberg plans on writing a book and is not joining another company, the spokesperson said.
