Not that we blame him for leaving, but the last thing Motorola needed was to have its Chief Technology Officer up and leave for greener pastures. Motorola CTO Richard Nottenburg has apparently called it quits on the company that bumped him up to the CTO post following previous Motorola CTO Warrior’s departure last year.
Nottenburg’s resignation comes on the heels of Carl Icahn’s increased stake/influence over Motorola. Motorola officially says that Nottenburg’s exit was due to his longing to “return to the New York area to be with his family and pursue other opportunities.”
It was a good run, Dick. We wish you all the best. Hopefully the mention of having steered Motorola’s wayward ship on your resume doesn’t hurt your future employment opportunities…
