Former Moto exec Moloney joins Lantiq’s board
Former Motorola executive Dan Moloney has been named to Lantiq’s board of directors.
Munich-based Lantiq is a supplier of chips and software for broadband access and home networking, which is right up Moloney’s alley after his time at Motorola.
Moloney was president of Motorola Mobility after it was spun off from Motorola in 2011. He served in that capacity until shortly after Google bought Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion in 2012.
Moloney was also president of the Home & Networks Mobility business within Motorola, from 2006 to 2011, and led the Connected Home business for Motorola from 2002 to 2006.
"We are very excited to add Dan Moloney to the Lantiq team,” said Lantiq CEO Dan Artusi, “His experience leading innovative organizations and building strong market positions, along with his extensive personal network in the telecom and connected home industries, will be a tremendous asset in continued strategy development at Lantiq."
Moloney joined Motorola in 2000 after the company bought General Instrurment. At GI, he led various technology developments, including digital TV and HDTV, VoIP, and Internet/video applications over cable.
Moloney also sits on TiVo’s board, and is an executive partner at Siris Capital.
“Lantiq is an incredibly interesting company that is well positioned as a leading semiconductor player in the expanding broadband communications industry,” Moloney said. “The company has tremendous potential and I look forward to helping increase its global footprint and drive continued profitable growth."
Lantiq’s SoC (system-on-chip) offerings address a variety of technologies, including xDSL, VoIP, Wi-Fi, FTTx, Gigabit Ethernet and LTE. The private company’s principal investor is Golden Gate Capital, which is a private equity firm. Also T-Venture, the venture capital arm of Deutsche Telekom, is a strategic investor in Lantiq.
