Motorola Mobility CEO to join Dropbox

DPA | | Updated on: Mar 12, 2018

Google executive Dennis Woodside, who ran the company’s Motorola Mobility division before it was sold to Lenovo last month, is moving to online storage company Dropbox as chief operating officer, he said on Thursday.

“At the end of March I will step down from my post as CEO at Motorola Mobility to join Dropbox as COO (chief operating officer),” he said in a company blog posting.

Woodside, who had filled a variety of senior roles at Google for more than 10 years, said that Motorola’s Senior Vice-President of product, Jonathan Rosenberg, would take over Motorola’s Chief Operating Officer and lead the company as it transitions to Lenovo’s ownership.

Dropbox allows consumers and business customers to easily share and store content online. Woodside’s move comes after Dropbox completed an investment round of some $350 million that values the 6-year-old startup at a reported $10 billion.
