After six years of overseeing Google's operations in China, Dr. John Liu is stepping down "to pursue other opportunities." During his tenure, we've seen the search engine struggle with censorship, almost get banned in the country and let's not forget the Aliyun OS debacle. Google says Scott Beaumont, who currently deals with European partnerships, will take over Liu's role starting in mid-August, though, it admits he has no experience of doing business in China. As for Google's future in the country, it's not the search leader, but Android seems to be well loved.
