Changes are afoot at in the Motorola leadership. The company is in a state of transition, poised to be transferred from Google to Lenovo in a multi-billion-dollar deal, and gearing up for the rumored launch of the Moto X+1 smartphone and the anticipated launch of the Moto 360 smartwatch running Android Wear. But some changes are happening in the company's upper echelons as well.

  • Charlie Tritschler is now the SVP of Product Management, overseeing all Motorla product development, marketing, and ecommerce.

  • Regional sales heads Jeff Miller (North America and Global), Sergio Buniac (Latin America), and Magnus Ahlqvist (EMEA and APAC) are now on the senior leadership team — Motorola will "rely more on our regional leaders who deeply understand their local markets" as their "global presence expands again."

  • Adrienne Hays, SVP of Marketing and Communications, is now leading "a newly combined marketing and communications organization that will be responsible for our brand image, advertising and reputation globally."

Rick Osterloh took over as Motorola's new president and COO back in April. The new organization looks to be a good one for Motorola, something that will enable them to function quasi-independently under the umbrella of Lenovo. How would you like to see these new marketing, sales, and development leads take Motorola?
