YouTube’s chief business officer Robert Kyncl recently left the company to take the top job at Warner Music Group. Now Alphabet’s video service’s CEO is stepping down too.

Susan Wojcicki has run YouTube for the last nine years, and is a 25-year veteran at Google. “I’ve decided to step back from my role as the head of YouTube and start a new chapter focused on my family, health and personal projects I’m passionate about,” she wrote in a message to colleagues announcing the change.

Current chief product officer Neal Mohan will be stepping up as her replacement, as SVP and head of YouTube. Wojcicki will be taking an advisory role across Google and Alphabet once the transition concludes.

“With all we’re doing across Shorts, streaming and subscriptions, together with the promises of AI, YouTube’s most exciting opportunities are ahead, and Neal is the right person to lead us,” she wrote.
