Google Ventures CEO Bill Maris quits: Recode

[BENGALURU] Bill Maris, the chief executive and founder of Alphabet Inc's venture capital arm GV, is leaving the company, Recode reported, citing sources.

Mr Maris, who leaves on Friday, will be replaced by GV managing partner David Krane, Recode said. A GV spokeswoman declined to comment on the report.

GV, previously known as Google Ventures, was founded in 2009 and has invested in more than 300 companies including Uber Technologies Inc and online retailer Jet.com, according to GV's website.

Alphabet's projects have seen some high-profile departures in recent months. Chris Urmson, chief technical officer for its self-driving car project, left last week, while Anthony Levandowski, product manager for the programme, left earlier this year to co-found a startup.
