Nuha Elkhiamy recently became the top executive in Austin for Google LLC, an increasingly influential employer in the Texas capital.
Elkhiamy was named the search engine company’s site lead in Austin after more than two years at the company, the Austin American-Statesman reported. She took over the position from Peter Norwood.
Alphabet Inc.-owned Google, which opened an Austin office in 2007, now employs more than 1,500 in the area, according to the Statesman. It occupies multiple floors in the 500 West 2nd Street tower but is poised to grow even more in the coming years: it has leased all of the Block 185 tower under construction on Cesar Chavez Street, in addition to the seven-floor Saltillo office building on the east side.
