Motorola Mobility has announced Rick Osterloh as the new President and COO.  Osterloh is stepping into the role of former CEO Dennis Woodside who is now the COO of Dropbox.  Hopefully Osterloh can steer Motorola into the right direction especially after the acquisition from Lenovo.

Below is a snippet from Motorola’s blog:

Since his return, Rick’s had a key role in the company’s reinvigoration. He’s been a guiding visionary on the entire product front and a passionate advocate for our philosophy to focus everything we do on the consumer experience.

 

I believe that Rick’s appointment provides the focused leadership and business continuity needed to steer the organization into the future, and I look forward to continuing in my role as Google liaison and advisor to Motorola through the transition period supporting Rick.

 

Sincerely,
Jonathan Rosenberg
