Head Chopping Continues at Moto

Motorola CEO Greg Brown is busy, busy, busy.

He's now replaced two more top executives, specifically the European half of the mobile device business and the company treasurer, bringing the total number of Moto leaders who've left the building to lucky seven.

This weekend's departures of treasurer Steve Strobel and EMEA head of mobile devices Mike Fenger are interesting and understandable.

I mean why a treasurer change? What possible impact can a treasurer have on mobile device business strategy?

I mean it's no surprise Brown's pushed out Fenger since he pushed his US counterpart, mobile services honcho Stu Reed, out the door just last week.

Larry Raymond, who reportedly is a former VP and treasurer at Sears Roebuck & Co., is taking Strobel's job.

Fenger is being replaced by Stephen Nolan, who just last week was VP of sales for Motorola in continental Europe.

Fenger now has time to have coffee with Reed, former CMO Kenneth Keller, ex-CTO Padmasree Warrior. ex-CFO Tom Meredith (though apparently he's still in the building for transition reasons) and ex-HR director Ruth Fattori.

What I wouldn't give to buy them all a cup of Starbucks in return for a little chat.
