Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) CEO Says Googles “Biggest Risk Is Complacency”
- Google’s “biggest risk is complacency, not innovating, not investing,” said Ruth Porat, the CFO of parent company Alphabet at Code Con on Wednesday.
- It’s important that we “continue to evolve what the user experience is,” she added, emphasizing that technology companies need to keep coming up with new ideas to stay ahead.
- Porat said we should expect Alphabet to buy more companies to aid their growth. “We look at acquisitions all the time,” she said, reminding the audience of how fruitful the purchases of YouTube and DoubleClick were. But “we have a high bar.”
