Dell snakes Motorola's mobile man

Hello, Garrqs

Top three mobile application threats

Dell has done some Zandr poaching, grabbing Motorola's handset chief to run its consumer products unit.

Ron Garriques worked at Motorola for nearly ten years, most recently as SVP and president of mobile devices. Now he'll report straight to Michael Dell as head of Dell's consumer goods. The latest executive move keeps Dell's brass door revolving.

The most notable recent Dell management change was, of course, founder Dell returning to the CEO role as Kevin Rollins resigned.

Also leaving Dell in the near-term are SVP of human resources Paul McKinnon and SVP of worldwide operations John Hamlin, who turned down the consumer products gig to head his own investment firm. These executives join CFO James Schneider who resigned in December, SVP of consumer products John Medica who will retire in April, SVP of the Americas Joe Marengi who will retire in March and SVP of marketing John Hamlin who has resigned.

Dell this week tapped former Solectron CEO Michael Cannon to fill the head of operations post.

A major executive overhaul could help Dell inject fresh life into its sagging Direct Model. The company has suffered from falling PC profits, slower server sales, customer service complaints, flaming laptops and a pair of accounting probes. Add in a stagnant share price, and you begin to understand the executive exodus.

Garriques will oversee a new unit within Dell that manages everything from notebooks to peripherals.

Hopefully for Dell, he didn't leave all his vowels at Motorola. ®
