Motorola Mobility president Dan Moloney resigns; former Charter CTO Fawaz to run home business
Motorola Mobility president Dan Moloney and CTO Geoff Roman are resigning, and will be replaced by former Charter Communications (Nasdaq: CHTR) executives Marwan Fawaz and Matt Bell, a source told FierceCable Thursday afternoon.
Moloney, a 30-year veteran of Motorola and predecessor General Instrument, will stay at the company through mid-July. Fawaz, who had been CTO at Charter and Adlephia Communications, started his new job as EVP of Motorola's home business Thursday, the source said.
Bell, who was VP of IP network and development at Charter, had been working with Fawaz at a Denver-based cable technology consulting firm Serepta Advisors. The cable executives had just announced the formation of Serepta in May at The Cable Show convention in Boston.
Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) closed its acquisition of $12.5 billion acquisition of Motorola Mobility in May.
Motorola Mobility said that Moloney was leaving the company to pursue other opportunities. "Dan has led the company through one of the most exciting periods in its 84-year history--and in the last two years, revived Motorola's innovation and drove the company's evolution into a software and network technology leader in the home ecosystem," Motorola said in a statement. "We thank Dan for all of his contributions to Motorola and to the industry at large."
