Anjali Pichai is the wife of the CEO of Google and Alphabet Inc, Sundar Pichai.
Anjali is from Kota, Rajasthan, India. The North Indian was born on January 11, 1971, to her father, Olaram Haryani. She grew up in a Brahmin family in Kota with her brother, Amit Haryani. Her dad remarried Madhuri Sharma on September 23, 2015, when he was 70 and his current wife was 65. Pichai’s mother had passed away two years prior in 2013.
As for her education, she graduated with a B Tech degree in Chemical Engineering from IIT Kharagpur (Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur) in 1993.
Sundar and Anjali Pichai’s Married Life
Anjali Pichai is married to Sundar Pichai. The pair first met during their college years at IIT Kharagpur. They were classmates.
They started as friends but ended up dating each other. During their final year of college, the duo got engaged and married a couple of years later.
After their graduation, Sundar moved to the US for further studies (M.S. in Engineering and Materials Science) at Stanford University. Since he wasn’t financially independent at the time, he couldn’t afford regular international calls. Due to this, the pair had to go several months without talking to each other.
But, that didn’t stop them from being in a relationship. It, in fact, made their relationship stronger. We can all see where they are now, can’t we?
“Back on Campus with Sundar Pichai”
In 2017, Sundar Pichai visited India for both personal and professional reasons. During his visit, he revealed his love story with over 3,500 students at his alma mater. His return to IIT was also live-streamed by Google on YouTube.
While revealing that he and his wife first met at IIT, he also went on to reveal that he had to walk in front of the girl’s hostel just to talk to her during his time.
.Just to go get someone at the girl’s hostel, you had to walk in the front and request someone to call them. And they’d go in and loudly say – Anjali, Sundar is here. It wasn’t exactly a pleasant experience.
Do Anjali and Sundar Have Kids?
Sundar and his wife, Anjali Pichai share two kids together, a son and a daughter.
Their daughter, Kavya Pichai, is believed to have been born in February 2003. She went to Lowell High School. Her locked FB profile says she’s engaged and her marriage to Mr. Sankar is 100% arranged.
As for their son, Kiran Pichai, he was born in 2007. The 14-year-old doesn’t seem to have any socials as of yet.
What does Anjali Pichai Do?
After completing her graduation with a B Tech in Chemical Engineering, Anjali Pichai started working as a Business Analyst for Accenture in 1999. She worked there until 2002.
Pichai then started working at Intuit as a Business Operations Manager. We are currently unsure if she’s working or not. Her LinkedIn profile doesn’t specify any details.
Several websites have reported Anjali’s net worth to be around $22 million. However, we can’t be certain of her fortune since we don’t know much about her career.
Meanwhile, her husband, Sundar Pichai, who became the CEO of Google on August 10, 2015, and the CEO of Alphabet Inc on December 3, 2019, has an estimated net worth of $600 million. He is believed to earn around $100 million in salaries annually.
While talking about their place of residence, Anjali and Sundar live in Los Altos Hills, California, with their two kids and pet dog, Jeffree. They purchased a 3.17-acre land at Westwind Way and La Paloma Road in July 2004 for $6 million.
The 3.17-acre land has a 3,274 square foot main house, an 870 square foot guesthouse, and a 970 square foot garage. The 2-story main house features a swimming pool, spa, elevator, gym, laundry rooms, wine cellar, and a nanny room in the basement.
Both Anjali and Sundar are thought to have helped Robert Swatt, partner of Swatt Miers Architects come up with the design.
Prior to buying the property, they used to live in a 4,429 square foot mansion on Donelson Place in Los Altos Hills, California.
