Susan Wojcicki is taking the reins of YouTube after leading Google Advertising for years

Susan Wojcicki, YouTube’s brand new chief, is excited to start her new job after leading Google’s advertising team for years.

“I can't wait to get started working with YouTube's wonderful team, vibrant community and its inspiring creators from all over the world. I'm looking forward to spending the next few weeks diving in to learn all parts of YouTube's ecosystem,” she wrote in a Google+ post.

She took the time to thank everyone for the kind welcome to YouTube and expressed her desire to start at the company.

At the same time, she acknowledged the teams over at Google’s Advertising, where she’s worked for 11 years. “I still remember, like it was yesterday, launching AdSense to help fund innovative content by online creators and publishers. And of course, AdWords has helped countless small and large businesses increase their sales, find new customers and open new stores.”

“We're still really early in the era of online content and the business models that fund it. There's so many exciting things ahead for everyone in this world we're all creating. YouTube, its community and creators have a front row view of the action. I can't wait to dive in,” Wojcicki wraps up her post.
