SCHAUMBURG, Ill. (AP) —Motorola said Monday it has named longtime company executive Mark Shockley as senior vice president of global go-to-market for its mobile devices business, responsible for overseeing the segment’s worldwide sales operations.
He will report to Sanjay Jha, co-CEO of Motorola and CEO of the mobile devices and home business.
Motorola recently realigned its four major businesses as it prepares to split into two publicly traded companies by 2011. The mobile devices and home unit Jha oversees makes cell phones and cable TV set-top boxes.
The second company will comprise Motorola’s enterprise mobility and networks businesses. Enterprise mobility handles such products as two-way radios while wireless networks systems fall under the networks division.
Shockley joined Motorola in 1979. He most recently served as senior vice president and general manager for the Americas region for Motorola’s mobile devices segment.
