Motorola considers HPs Todd Bradley for wireless unit

Motorola, Todd Bradley

As Motorola's wireless unit reels from losses and restructuring, it is evidently close to finding a new head for the department, with HP executive Todd Bradley proving to be the favorite, say insiders. The Wall Street Journal writes that Bradley is one of two candidates still under consideration by Motorola, with the other, a wireless industry executive, remaining anonymous. While nothing official has yet spawned, Motorola says the negotiations are at a sensitive stage, with Bradley himself saying he's "not planning on making any changes."

Bradley holds a 25-year career in management that includes GE Capital, Dun & Bradstreet, Gateway, FedEx, and PalmOne - Palm elected him to the position when it had split its hardware and software business units. During his time at PalmOne, Bradley is credited with helping the company cut costs, while shifting product focus to smartphones.

Since sales of the Motorola RAZR have fallen short, costing the company $1.6 billion since January 2007, the company has been anxious to spin off its wireless unit, but lacks an influential person to oversee the venture.
