New York, NY–The Consumer Electronics Association has tapped Larry Page, Googles co-founder and president of products, to deliver a keynote address at the 2006 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
“Page has helped lead Google to become one of the world’s most prolific brands and recognized as the world’s largest Internet search engine,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of CEA. “Google has been one of the most innovative companies of the past decade, moving beyond its search engine roots. With his entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to innovation, Page is a natural fit for CES. We are thrilled that he has come on board as a keynoter at the 2006 International CES. Page joins a keynote line-up that includes Microsoft’s Bill Gates, Intel’s Paul Otellini, Sony’s Howard Stringer and Yahoo!’s Terry Semel.
Larry Page co-founded Google as the CEO in 1998 and grew the company to more than 200 employees and profitability before moving into his role as president of products in April 2001. He continues to share responsibility for Google’s day-to-day operations and serve on Google’s Board of Directors.
In 2002, Page was named a World Economic Forum Global Leader for Tomorrow. He is a member of the National Advisory Committee (NAC) of the University of Michigan College of Engineering, and together with co-founder Sergey Brin, he was honored with the Marconi Prize in 2004. He is a trustee on the board of the X PRIZE and was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 2004.
