Craig Barratt

Senior Vice President, Access and Energy, at Google

Craig is an Australian technology executive who grew up in Sydney and has spent most of his career in Silicon Valley. He joined Google in 2013, and oversees its Access division, which includes Google Fiber, the gigabit-speed internet service, OnHub, Google’s smart Wi-Fi router, and Railtel, its project to provide Wi-Fi service at up to 400 railway stations across India.

The co-inventor of 34 US patents, Craig was previously President and CEO of Atheros, one of the semiconductor pioneers of Wi-Fi, where he led its public offering on NASDAQ in 2004 and sale to Qualcomm for US$3.6 billion in 2011. He is sometimes referred to in the industry as “the other Craig Barratt” to avoid confusion with former Chairman and CEO of Intel, Craig Barrett.

Craig holds PhD and Master’s degrees in electrical engineering from Stanford University, and B.Eng. and B.Sc. degrees from the University of Sydney.

He is the co-author of a book on Linear Controller Design and several open source projects.
