Former Google CEO Larry Page and Sergey Brin left the search giant to form parent holding company Alphabet, leaving Sundar Pichai as the new CEO at Google. And now, Pichai has just made his first big move at Google, promoting Hiroshi Lockheimer from VP of Android to SVP of Android, Chrome OS, and Chromecast.

Pichai had some other promotions to give out, making Neal Mohan the SVP of display and video advertising, where he was formerly just a VP. Phillip Schindler was also given a new promotion, and will now be the new SVP of Global Sales and Operations for Google.

You may have heard about Hiroshi Lockheimer from various presentations. He’s actually been at Google since 2006, and recently had a big part to play in the launch of the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, which was his biggest appearance as of late.

Either way, there’s been quite a reorganization at Google, as Pichai also handed out a bunch of promotions for its new VPs as well. These promotions were announced via a company-wide email on Friday.
