Today I am writing about Larry Page.
Larry Page is an computer engineer & internet entrepreneur. He along with Sergey Brin founded Google. Page was born in 26th March, 1973 in East Lensing, Michigan, US. His parents are Carl Victor Page & Gloria page.

In 1998, Brin and Page founded Google, Inc. Page ran Google as coo-president along with Brin until 2001 when they hired Eric Schmidt as Chairman and CEO of Google. In January 2011 Google announced that Page would replace Schmidt as CEO in April the same year. On April 4, 2011, Page officially became the chief executive of Google, while Schmidt stepped down to become executive chairman of Google. Page also sits on the Board of Directors of Google.
In 2003, Page, along with Brin, received an honorary MBA from IE Business School “for embodying the entrepreneurial spirit and lending momentum to the creation of new businesses.”
