Motorola Mobility is now in a state of transition after the multibillion dollar sale of the company by Google to Lenovo. The company has had one of its most profitable performances in a while selling over 8 million units of its current devices: the Moto X, Moto G and Moto E. In addition, the company is poised to launch new entries in to the market in a few short weeks. However, it seems like some changes had to come about before the company will be able to move forward.
The changes announced on Motorola’s official blog were firstly that Charlie Tritschler would be taking over as Senior Vice President of Product Management; Regional Sales Heads Jeff Miller (North America and Global), Sergio Buniac (Latin America), and Magnus Ahlqvist (EMEA and APAC) will be joining the senior leadership of the company providing valuable insight in their global expansion efforts; Adrienne Hays, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Communications will be heading a newly combined team responsible for Brand image, reputation and advertising on a global scale. All of this comes after Rick Osterloh took the reigns as President and Chief Operations Officer of Motorola back in April.
It looks like the purchase by Lenovo isn’t affecting how Motorola Mobility was run under Google with the company retaining a measure of autonomy in its functions and processes. This also come before the launch of Motorola’s much anticipated Android Wear running Moto 360 and follow up to Moto X, the Moto X+1.
