Well-known self-driving car maker Waymo has announced an important personnel reshuffle. The company is a subsidiary of the Alphabet holding, which also includes, for example, Google.

Waymo was founded as an independent company on December 13, 2016 and has been led by John Krafcik ever since. Now Kravchik is leaving the post of CEO. He is replaced by two general directors at once – Dmitry Dolgov and Takedra Mavakana. Dolgov previously served as CTO and Takedra Mawakana as COO of Waymo.

Former Russian Dmitry Dolgov, now a US citizen, is one of the founders of the project. In 2000, he graduated from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, and six years later received his doctorate from the University of Michigan. He has been working at Google since 2009, when the project for the development of self-driving cars did not have a special name and was not separated into an independent company.
