Motorola names Rick Osterloh its new leader... at least until Lenovo takes over
Osterloh has been chosen to be the new president and COO of the company. The now ex-COO Jonathan Rosenberg has said that Osterloh was a big part of the reinvention of Motorola that has happened over the past couple years since Google purchased the company. Rosenberg went on to say:
Rosenberg will be staying on as an adviser, and as a liaison between Motorola and Google. Obviously, it is unclear what will be happening with Motorola's management once the Lenovo deal goes through, so this may be a relatively temporary position for Osterloh. This is the second big change in a month for the company after former CEO Dennis Woodside left for Dropbox in March.
