Patrick Pichette, CFO of Google for the past 7 years has just announced his retirement from the mega company. Having been Google's "secret weapon" during this time, cutting many non-profitable Google products and introducing many new solutions for them, we wonder who will they hire next? What will happen to Google's efforts to take over the digital world? Who else will be cool enough to say he was a part of the FWIO, the noble Fraternity of Worldwide Insecure Over-achievers?
Saying goodbye on Google+ of course, here is his now famous statement:
"In the end, life is wonderful, but nonetheless a series of trade offs, especially between business/professional endeavours and family/community," he wrote. "And thankfully, I feel I’m at a point in my life where I no longer have to have to make such tough choices anymore. And for that I am truly grateful. Carpe Diem."
