Google CEO Larry Page reports to the Google Board of Directors. YouTube is simply a division of Google, so Susan will still report to Larry, and the correct title for that role is SVP.

Wonder how miserable this [portion removed] will make Youtube. They already ruined it by tying it to G+ but I am sure she has more miserable plans.

Details: I'm sure you're correct that in her new role at YouTube, Susan Wojcicki will still report to Larry Page, but the job she's moving into does have the title of CEO.

I hope that the imminent divorce of Susan's sister from Sergei Brinn does not affect her relationship with Sergei or Larry.

Larry Page is the majority shareholder so he is the Big Boss. The whole Wojicki family are shareholders, too, however. And surely they are not happy with their son-and-brother-in-law's involvement with his young employee, whom he allegedly now lives with. Wonder how that will affect stock value
