Nest Labs chief out after two years at Google

Tony Fadell is stepping down as head of Nest Labs, just over two tumultuous years after selling the smart-home gadget maker to Google. Fadell will leave Nest immediately and be replaced by Marwan Fawaz, former executive vice president of Motorola Mobility where he served as CEO of Motorola Home, Nest said in a statement.

Fadell will still advise Alphabet and Larry Page, the Google co-founder and chief executive officer of the holding company. The departure, and problems that precipitated it, are a blow to Google, which purchased Nest.
