Alphabet Inc’s Google has appointed Stanley Chen as its managing director of Greater China sales and operations,

Stanley Chen headed up sales in Taiwan for Apple, the US Tech Group before joining Google in December 2011.
Sundar Pichai, Google CEO, told the US House of Representatives judiciary committee in December that Google was looking into what a search engine in China would look like, it had no plans to launch a service in China. But, he did not rule out doing so in the future.
China is still an important market for Google, which runs a big advertising business and also employs engineers, including an AI research centre in Beijing.
