Google takes a cue from Goldman Sachs

When it comes to outside connections, Google has a long way to go before it can compete with Goldman Sachs, infamously branded as the vampire squid.

Yet Google’s business tentacles have grown considerably, reaching well beyond the tech world.

Directors at Alphabet, its parent company, hold positions at such prominent operations as Netflix, Cisco Systems, MGM and TIAA-CREF.

Top executives also have assumed major board posts. Gerhard Eschelbeck, VP of security and privacy engineering at Google, joined the supervisory board of Deutsche Bank last month. Mary Ellen Coe, another VP, became a director of Whole Foods in November. Lorraine Twohill, Google’s head of global marketing, sits on the Williams-Sonoma board.

As the interactive Muckety map above shows, other Google execs have direct ties with such companies as Bloomin’ Brands and Twitter.
