David Robinson, the former president of Motorola Broadband, has reunited with former boss Ed Breen to become president of Tyco International Ltd. 's plastics and adhesives group.
Robinson, who left Motorola Broadband this year to pursue a CEO-level job, was succeeded in June by cable vet Dan Moloney, whose time with Motorola goes back to its merger with General Instrument Corp. in early 2000.
In his new role, Robinson, 43, will head a Tyco division that manufactures plastic film, molded products and laminates for clients in the retail, industrial, automotive, agricultural, housing and food packaging sectors.
Robinson's appointment "signals a renewed focus on the operations of the plastics business," Breen said, in a press release. "I have worked closely with Dave Robinson for over 15 years, and I know that he is a proven leader with an outstanding track record."
Breen joined Tyco in July as the company's new chairman and CEO, replacing embattled Chairman Dennis Kozlowski.
