Motorola Mobility CEO to Leave the Company
Published on: 13th Feb 2014
Motorola Mobility's CEO Dennis Woodside has announced that he is leaving the company just after Google had announced that it is selling it to China's Lenovo.
In a blog post, he announced that he will leave the handset manufacturer at the end of next month, to take up the role of Chief Operations Officer at the cloud storage provider, Dropbox.
Woodside has been with Google for just over a decade, heading the company's ad sales before he was moved over to head up Motorola Mobility in 2011.
Jonathan Rosenberg, a longtime Googler and SVP of Products from 2002 to 2011, will step in as COO at Motorola Mobility at the start of April to steer the company through its sale to Lenovo.
Google Chief Business Officer Nikesh Arora will remain Executive Chairman of the Motorola Operating Board, and continue to oversee the strategy.
