Motorola Mobility has announced that its new President and COO will be Rick Osterloh, with immediate effect.
He replaces Dennis Woodside, who announced that he was leaving the company just after Google announced its deal to sell the company to Lenovo.
Rick is a Silicon Valley veteran and a familiar face across Motorola, where he has been leading all product management and helping to define the 'go forward' strategy for the past two years. Rick first joined the company 7 years ago when Motorola acquired Good, and he started Motorola down the Android path while managing product and engineering teams. Between stints here, Rick joined Skype, where he oversaw design and product for more than 250 million monthly users until it was acquired by Microsoft.
Rick Osterloh will be reporting to the Motorola Operating Board at Google until the Lenovo acquisition is complete.
