Google Workspace head Javier Soltero is leaving the company

Javier Soltero, the head of Google Workspace announced that he is going to leave his job, via his official Twitter handle. Soltero will leave his role effective July 15.

Soltero was in charge of Google's productivity and collaboration tools, which include Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Docs, Slides, and Meet.

Soltero confirmed his plans on Twitter, saying, “I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to work alongside so many talented people, on incredible products that are truly helpful to billions. I am proud of what we've accomplished during this time & confident the Workspace team, its leaders, and our strategy (sic).”

“And, as a testament to my talent at using Twitter, I must note that my official last day at Google is July 15th, not July 1st! ,” he added.

Soltero originally joined Google’s G-Suite team in 2019 after leaving Microsoft, where he ran product strategy for Microsoft Office. Soltero became a Microsoft employee when the company acquired his email startup, Acompli, in 2014. From there he rose through the ranks from the general manager of Outlook Mobile to corporate vice president of the Office Product Group.

Google then hired Soltero to try and run the Microsoft playbook with what used to be known as G-Suite. In October of 2020, just a year after Soltero joined Google, the company rebranded its suite as Google Workspace.
