Motorola CEO confirms departure in blog post

Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside has confirmed his intentions to take on the role of COO at Dropbox. A post on Motorola’s blog today tells us that he’ll step down on March 31 and will be replaced by “longtime Googler” Jonathan Rosenberg.

I’m excited about what the next chapter in Motorola’s storied history will bring under the new ownership of Lenovo. While Google imbued simplicity and software sensibility into the company, Lenovo will bring it the scale it deserves. I have no doubt the two companies together will be a force for good in the mobile industry.

Woodside is deservedly proud of his achievements and time with Motorola but also understands there’s work to do. We get the sense, however, that he’s confident in Lenovo’s direction and abilities.
