Several high-level executives of massive global firms including the chairman of Alphabet, the parent company of Google, have resigned this year in what is a noticeable trend of top corporate executives stepping down.

“In recent years, I’ve been spending a lot of my time on science and technology issues, and philanthropy, and I plan to expand that work,” said Eric E. Schmidt, chairman of Alphabet.

Schmidt left his role at the company on Dec. 21. He served as Google CEO from 2001 to 2011, as part of his 17-year tenure at the tech giant.

Schmidt is expected to continue his service to the company by advising on science and technology issues, he said.
