Google CEO Larry Page said in a statement about the executive change and YouTube:
"Salar and the whole YouTube team have built something amazing. YouTube is a billion person global community curating videos for every possibility. Anyone uploading their creative content can reach the whole world and even make money. Like Salar, Susan has a healthy disregard for the impossible and is excited about improving YouTube in ways that people will love."
Wojcicki’s work in Google ads represented the lion’s share of the company’s profits, or more than 91 percent, in 2013. She praised YouTube’s move to TrueView advertising, saying the model would become the norm -- where marketers only pay if their ads are watched. Wojcicki said that the industry was “moving to a model where the user is choosing to see the ads.”
