Temsamani has been credited with growing Google’s search and display advertising business in Australia, and building relationships with agency partners, growing the company’s YouTube operations and establishing major partnerships to provide greater content and services for local users over the past three years. The Google team downunder has also grown to 400 employees under his leadership.
Karim Temsamani said: “The past three years working with the Google Australia and New Zealand team have been extraordinary and I’m excited to take on a new challenge at Google. There’s no doubt that the future of the Internet is mobile and I look forward to playing a greater part in this fast growing and exciting business.”
Google recently announced that 200,000 new Android-powered devices are activated every day.
