Lawrence Edward Page[3] (born March 26, 1973) is an American computer scientist and Internet entrepreneur. He is best known as one of the co-founders of Google along with Sergey Brin.[1][4]

Page was the chief executive officer of Alphabet Inc. (Google's parent company) until stepping down on December 3, 2019. After stepping aside as Google CEO in August 2001 in favor of Eric Schmidt, he re-assumed the role in April 2011. He announced his intention to step aside a second time in July 2015 to become CEO of Alphabet, under which Google's assets would be reorganized. Under Page, Alphabet sought to deliver major advancements in a variety of industries.[5] On December 4, 2019, Page stepped down from his CEO position from Alphabet. Both Page and Sergey Brin remain at Alphabet as co-founders, board members, employees, and controlling shareholders.[6]

Forbes placed him 10th in the list "Billionaires 2019".[7] As of March 2020, Page is the 13th-richest person in the world, with a net worth of $62.6 billion, according to Forbes.[1]

Page is the co-inventor and namesake of PageRank, a search ranking algorithm for Google, which he wrote with Brin.[15] Page received the Marconi Prize in 2004 with Brin.[16]
