Nest CEO steps down as the company joins Google's home division
Nest CEO steps down as the company joins Google's home division. According to CNET, Nest has announced today that Marwan Fawaz will no longer be its CEO. As part of his departure, Nest will now be folded into Google's home and living room products team. In a joint interview with Fawaz, Rishi Chandra, vice president of product management for Google's home and living room products, said that the combination would make it easier for Google to integrate some of its machine learning technology and artificial intelligence into Nest products. This move comes six months after Nest merged with Google's hardware division.
