Rick Osterloh is in charge

Motorola Mobility has named Rick Osterloh as its chief operating officer until its acquisition by Lenovo sorted out.

The appointment was made public on Wednesday on Motorola's official blog by Jonathan Rosenberg, who will continue in his role as Google liaison and adviser to Motorola through the transition period. Lenovo agreed to buy Google's Motorola handset division for $2.91 billion in January, in what was China's largest-ever tech deal and it is still waiting for the regulators approval.

Liu Jun, EVP, Mobile Business Group, Lenovo said that it was confident that Osterloh's would not only manage a smooth transition at Motorola from Google to Lenovo but, also to lead the business forward for continued growth.

Osterloh, who was responsible for the delivery of software and operation of the Android platform at Motorola, joined the company seven years ago and left for a two years to work at Skype.
