Music starts again at Motorola

David Dorman steps up to plate as non-executive chair

David Dorman, latterly CEO of AT&T, will take over as non-executive chair at Motorola on 5 May. He'll be replacing Ed Zander, the Motorola CEO who was eased out last year.

When Ed was ousted from his CEO position back in November he hung onto his chairman position, as the tenure lasted until May this year - so the appointment of a replacement is no great surprise.

Mr Dorman joined the Motorola board in July 2006, prior to which he was chairman and CEO of AT&T between 2002 and 2005. The CEO role at Motorola is, for the moment at least, still occupied by Greg Brown.

We're all waiting to see who ends up in control of the two separate companies Motorola has avowed to become, and what they end up being called - those working in the handset division are terrified of losing the brand name, the only thing of value left in the company. ®
