Sanjay Jha, CEO of Motorola Mobility, Discusses Cloud Computing.
By Bruce V. Bigelow (from Xconomy.)
“Sanjay Jha was lured from Qualcomm (NASDAQ: QCOM) to serve as co-CEO of Schaumburg, IL-based Motorola (NYSE: MOT) and the CEO of the nearby Motorola Mobility division, which includes mobile handsets, wireless accessories, and home digital media devices. Now there’s a chance the wireless industry’s prodigious son might return to San Diego—and bring the headquarters of Motorola Mobility with him.
Motorola Mobility is the division that is set to become an independent company by the first quarter of 2011, and Jha says he plans to decide before the end of this year whether to put the new corporate headquarters in Austin, TX, Silicon Valley, or San Diego. Jha’s family still lives in San Diego, and he has retained ties here. So local interest in his pending decision is high, and there was a good turnout when he appeared as a guest speaker this morning at a regular meeting of the San Diego Venture Group.
Jha was forthright from the outset, saying “the days of us living off the fumes of the Razor are gone” and that Motorola Mobility had to develop a new strategy to anticipate the coming era of mobile data.”
