Verily today announced the expansion of Stephen Gillett’s responsibilities, adding the title of President to his current role as Chief Operating Officer (COO). Gillett has held leadership and advisory roles at Google and across the Alphabet family for the past six years and joined Verily 18 months ago to drive operational, technical, cultural and strategic initiatives across the company.

In his expanded role as President and COO, Stephen will partner with Andy Conrad, Verily’s Founder and CEO, and the leadership team to advance the organization as it scales and evolves into being a broader commercial company. Specifically, Stephen will have a more visible role in the strategic business planning process along with the company’s CFO Deepak Ahuja; will take on additional responsibilities in commercial operations and technology innovation; and will assume additional administrative responsibilities for Verily's real estate and workplace services.
