Ed Zander '68 Named Chairman and CEO of Motorola

Motorola recently announced that Ed Zander '68 will assume the role of Chairman and Chief Executive Officer on January 5, 2004. Zander's last major job was as President and Chief Operating Office of Sun Microsystems. As previously reported on RCNJ.org, he left Sun in July 2002 after spending about 15 years with the company.

Shortly after he was named Chairman and CEO of Motorola, CNET News.com interviewed him and asked what challenges lay ahead in turning around the 75-year-old icon of the mobile communications industry. According to the article, the company has lost $6 billion and 50,000 employees in the last three years.
