Google Announces Appointment

Google Russia chose Yulia Solovyeva, a former president of media group ProfMedia, as its new CEO, Google said in a press release, as cited by Interfax.

Solovyeva, who left her post at ProfMedia in February, was responsible for the creation and introduction of the group's portfolio strategy, asset management, corporate governance and financial results.

At Google Russia, Solovyeva will be responsible for strategic development. Before joining Google, Solovyeva worked at professional services firm Alvarez & Marsal.
