Google has announced that chief financial officer Patrick Pichette is retiring after about six years as one of the Internet titan's top executives.
Pichette's pending departure from Google was disclosed in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing available online Tuesday.
A date for Pichette's departure from Google had yet to be set and he "intends to assist in the search for a new CFO and ensure an orderly transition" which was expected by the company to occur within six months.
Prior to joining Google in 2008, Canada-born Pichette worked at McKinsey and Company and Bell Canada.
The Rhodes Scholar earned degrees from the University of Quebec in Montreal and from Britain's Oxford University.
