Google has appointed former Time Warner Cable chief operating officer, Dinni Jain, as CEO of Google Access - its internet service provider division that runs Google Fiber and Webpass. He served as COO of Time Warner Cable from January 2014 to May 2016 (when Charter completed its acquisition of TW Cable). Jain is replacing former Access CEO Greg McCray, who left past year amid turmoil at Access over the future of Google Fiber and Alphabet's longer-term plans for providing low-priced, high-speed internet to both consumers and businesses.
"We're excited to announce that Access has a new leader to move the Google Fiber and Webpass businesses forward", said Google in a statement.
