Alphabet (Google) diversifies on top with appointment of Roger Ferguson into Board

Alphabet (Google) is boosting its finance chops by appointing Roger Ferguson, the former vice chairman of the Federal Reserve and CEO of TIAA, as it’s 12th director.

Mr. Ferguson is Alphabet’s latest nod to Wall Street since hiring former Morgan Stanley executive Ruth Porat as its chief financial officer last year, a move seen as an effort to improve relations with investors. Shortly after Ms. Porat’s arrival, she helped lead a restructuring that split the core business of Google from a series of side projects like a research lab and internet provider dubbed “other bets.” The new parent company, Alphabet, has since given investors more details on the company’s finances.
