Motorola's new "strategic glue"
Wed, 01/31/2001 - 7:00pm
Motorola is reorganizing into two business groups to accelerate its rollout of new technology, further its global reach and work well with two other major Motorola divisions. "This organization evolution provides stronger strategic glue for our Broadband 'Triple-Play' strategy and acknowledges the expanded roles now played by Dan Moloney, Doug Means and Carl McGrath," Dave Robinson, newly appointed president of Motorola's Broadband unit, tells CEDaily. The two new groups — the IP Systems Group, led by Moloney, and the Entertainment Systems Group — have been created out of Motorola's Broadband Communications Sector, and led by Dave Robinson. The Entertainment Systems Group is comprised of the Satellite & Broadcast Network Systems business unit, headed up by Means. Motorola's DigiCable business unit, led by McGrath, will focus on North American digital cable initiatives of the unit previously known as Digital Network Systems (DNS). The new structure is designed to better serve Motorola's cable industry customers, while broadening its scope as a global provider of advanced broadband technology.
