Eric Schmidt and Diane Greene are leaving Alphabet’s board of directors

Google’s parent company Alphabet announced that two board members, Eric Schmidt and Diane Green, will not be seeking re-election when their terms expire on June 19.

Schmidt has been on the company’s board since 2001, and also served as CEO for a decade, until April 2011. Alphabet said he will continue to serve as a “technical advisor” to the company.

Greene, meanwhile, was the CEO of Google’s cloud business from 2015 until her departure earlier this year. She’s been on the board since 2012.

Along with the departures, Alphabet is also announcing the appointment of Robin L. Washington to its board. Washington is the executive vice president and chief financial officer of biopharmaceutical company Gilead Sciences. She previously held executive roles at Hyperion Solutions and PeopleSoft.

“Robin’s incredible business and leadership experience will be hugely valuable to our Board and company in the years ahead,” said Board Chairman John Hennessy in a statement.
