Motorola Mobility CEO Dennis Woodside says he’s leaving the company at the end of March to join Dropbox as its Chief Operating Officer.
It follows Google’s recent decision to sell its smartphone business to Lenovo.
As part of the transition, Jonathan Rosenberg - former Google senior Vice President of Products - will be appointed COO of Motorola Mobility from April. Google’s Nikesh Arora will remain as Executive Chairman of the Motorola Operating Board.
In a blog post, Mr Woodside said “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.”
