Alphabet names McCray to lead Access unit

Thursday 16 February 2017 | 10:31 CET | News
Alphabet has named Gregory McCray to lead its Access subsidiary, which includes Google Fiber. With the appointment, the Access unit is getting slimmer. Several hundred employees are moving over to Alphabet's main Google business a person familiar with the situation told Bloomberg. McCray used to be CEO of Aero Communications and also sits on the board of CenturyLink. The role of Access CEO has been vacant since October, when Craig Barratt, the former head of the unit, resigned. That same day, Alphabet said it was slowing the FTTH roll-out at Google Fiber.
