Motorola Mobility Assures Partners With New President Appointment
Motorola Mobility, which Google is in the process of selling to Lenovo for $2.9 billion, this week named company veteran Rick Osterloh as its new president and COO. The move, according to Motorola and Lenovo partners, sets the stage for a strong transition while the deal is completed later this year, and assures partners of leadership continuity.
The IT industry is rife with cases of acquiring companies failing to leverage the full potential of their acquisitions because of poor planning or weak leadership during the transition. Osterloh's appointment is a big step to ensure Lenovo, Motorola and their channel partners profit from the acquisition.
