Motorola's U.K. chief quits after being told of Lenovo buy just 30 minutes before it was announced
Among Morley's achievements at Motorola was the creation of the "Life Empowered" marketing campaign. Yet, the reward for all of his hard work was to be told about the Lenovo acquisition just 30 minutes before the deal went public. Morley apparently believes that a number of Motorola employees will follow him out of the company. He says that many people stuck around at the company because it was owned by Google. But with that "incentive" gone, there is no longer any reason for these people to stay.
That's not to say that Morley doesn't expect the deal to pan out. He expects the deal to be a successful one for Lenovo. In the meantime, Motorola will count on Marcus Frost to handle UK marketing responsibilities while the company searches for a replacement for Morley. He becomes the second big name to leave Motorola this year, following CEO Dennis Woodside's departure to become COO at Dropbox back in February.
