Four years after U-M President Mary Sue Coleman first talked with Google founder Larry Page about the idea of his company coming to Ann Arbor, the dream is a reality. The Ann Arbor offices already have more than 100 employees with many more on the way. Coleman and her top executive officers paid a visit to meet with the new staff, which includes 40 U-M graduates, to welcome Google to the neighborhood.
