The answer is "yes"


Google generally picks your profile image IF it meets their unstated criteria. They generally will not pick it if it is a logo. And they seem to have preferences that sometimes vary by industry. For example they will pick hotel room photos over other types of photos in that industry. 


They will also pick your profile image (again if it meets their algo's standards) but periodically swap out other images in a test.
