Barely two weeks into the company's reorganization process, Motorola's president of Home & Networks Mobility Dan Moloney has decided to turn in his keys for brighter pastures. His resignation comes as Motorola has put Sanjay Jha in charge of the new mobile devices and home businesses.
During his 10-year tenure at Motorola, which began when he joined the company as a result of its acquisition of General Instrument in 2000, Moloney worked his way up through the ranks ultimately becoming president of Motorola's Home & Networks Mobility unit in 2007. Prior to coming to Motorola, Moloney spent 16 years at General Instrument.
Next month, the cable industry veteran will take the helm at Technitrol, a Philadelphia-based components vendor.
Moloney's departure comes as Motorola gets set to make major changes to the company's structure. Next year, the company will split itself up into two independent publicly traded companies: Home & Networks Mobility (overseen by Sanjay Jha) and Enterprise Mobility Solutions and Networks (overseen by current co-CEO compatriot Greg Brown).
