If you’re working in a top position in a company, you’d expect the company officials to let you know about anything important going on in the company. And in case you’re not, you may have to take some steps to prove your worth.
As we all know, Motorola Mobility was acquired by Lenovo a few months back, but there was one person who was told about the acquisition just 30 minutes before the deal was announced. He’s Motorola UK’s managing director Andrew Morley, who was told about the acquisitions moments before it went public. And, what did he do after he was told? He resigned, which makes sense since the company officials didn’t share such a big news.
Morley was one of the top figures in the company, and worked for Motorola for seven years. He was present when the company was acquired by Google in 2011, so it makes he took this step.
“It is the right time to move,” Morley said talking to the Guardian. “It is very difficult to commit to another three years at the company now that it is in the hands of Lenovo.”
“Google was a great employer, and many people stuck around at Motorola because of Google, but now that incentive has gone,” explained Morley.
He do believe that Lenovo acquisition could be a turning point for Lenovo, since the Chinese OEM turned around IBM after its acquisition.
This comes as a bad news for Motorola since Morley isn’t the first key figure to leave the company. Not too long ago, Motorola’s CEO Dennis Woodside also left the company to work for Dropbox.
