Executive changes are coming to Google Access, including the possible departure of CEO Craig Barratt, according to sources. The company is holding a town hall-style meeting sometime soon to announce these potential changes, these sources say.
Access operates as its own entity underneath the Alphabet umbrella, and runs the tech giant’s broadband internet service, Fiber. Barratt, as CEO, oversees those efforts. It’s possible Barrett could also be moved to another department, according to sources.
A Google Access spokesperson declined to comment.
Barratt has been with Google since 2013, joining a few years after Qualcomm bought his connectivity company Atheros Communications for $3.1 billion in 2011. At the time, Barratt was CEO and president of Atheros, then became president of the new joint entity Qualcomm Atheros before leaving to join Google.
Noteworthy: Alphabet has a board meeting scheduled for Wednesday ahead of Thursday’s earnings report.
