Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) announced that Alain Mutricy has joined Motorola as senior vice president, Platform Technology, within the company’s Mobile Devices business.
He will be responsible for defining and directing the business unit’s global strategy for silicon and software platforms and will be based at Motorola’s Libertyville, Illinois, facility. Mutricy will report directly to Terry Vega, head of products and technology as well as co-leader of the Mobile Devices business.
“Alain is globally recognized for his expertise in defining and delivering silicon-chipset platforms that drive both cost efficiencies and speed to market,” said Vega. “Additionally, he brings proven leadership in important and fast-emerging opportunities in wireless – particularly in voice- and multimedia-enhanced applications for 2.5G and 3G wireless devices. We are thrilled to welcome him to the Motorola team,” said Vega.
“Alain is a tremendous addition to Motorola,” said Greg Brown, president and chief operating officer. “We are excited about the depth and breadth of his chipset-platforms and product-management expertise. His proven capabilities will help drive future successes for our Mobile Devices business as we work to design and deliver the world’s most compelling mobile communications experiences.”
By joining Motorola, Mutricy concludes more than 18 years with Texas Instruments, where he was promoted to vice president in January 2002.
From 2004 until his departure from Texas Instruments, Mutricy served as vice president and general manager for the company’s Cellular Systems Solutions business. In that role, he was responsible for commercializing and building a leadership position for the company’s wireless chipset solutions for GSM/GPRS/EDGE/3G and OMAP™ application processors. Prior to leading Cellular Systems Solutions, Mutricy was general manager for the Texas Instruments OMAP™ business, which he led from start-up status to global leadership between 2000 and 2004. Additionally, from the time he joined Texas Instruments in 1989, Mutricy was promoted through a series of general-management positions, each with increasing scope and responsibility in areas including sales, marketing and general management.
