Google CEO Sundar Pichai has joined the board Google’s parent company Alphabet, the company said Monday.

Pichai is the 13th Alphabet board member.

“Sundar has been doing a great job as Google’s CEO, driving strong growth, partnerships, and tremendous product innovation. I really enjoy working with him and I’m excited that he is joining the Alphabet board,” Alphabet CEO Larry Page said in a statement.

Pichai has been a Google employee since 2004 and rapidly rose through the executive ranks to become CEO after the formation of Alphabet.

Alphabet reports earnings for the second quarter Monday afternoon.
