UK managing director Andrew Morley departs Motorola after Lenovo takeover

In light of Motorola's sale to Lenovo, the company's UK managing director Andrew Morley is set to leave after joining Motorola back in 2010. This departure follows CEO Dennis Woodside stepping down back in September, soon after Google sold its mobile company to Lenovo.

Morley noted in an interview with the Guardian that it's "very difficult to commit to another three years at the company now that it is in the hands of Lenovo." The Chinese electronics firm has purchased Motorola for $2.9 billion, just two years after the company was bought by Google for $12.5 billion. While Morley has decided to leave Motorola, the director believes the new owner will be a successful combination.

Motorola is now searching for fresh blood, appointing senior marketing director Marcus Frost as a temporary replacement.
