Lenovo restructuring its operations as part of management shakeup

Bigwig Chinese device maker Lenovo has revealed in a recent announcement that it is restructuring its operations as part of a management shakeup.

The reorganization move put in place by Lenovo -- which acquired Motorola in 2014 -- has resulted in the switch over of some executives to new positions. The changes announced by Lenovo will become effective from April 1, 2016.

As a result of the management shakeup at Lenovo, Gianfranco Lanci - ex-CEO of Acer - has been named as the chief of Lenovo's PC and Smart Devices Group. Lanci is presently the President and Chief Operating Officer of the Lenovo Group. In his new role, Lanci will head the development of Lenovo's venerable PCs -- including ThinkPad -- and tablets. In addition, he will also lead Lenovo's' efforts in developing smart devices for the Internet of Things (IoT) platform.

Another change announced by Lenovo is that the company's Mobile Business Group will have two new Presidents --- Xudong Chen and Aymar de Lencquesaing. Chen was previously the head of Lenovo's mobile efforts in China; while de Lencquesaing was the head of the company's operations in North America.

Yet another executive switching roles due to management shakeup is Lenovo's company-wide CTO Peter Hortensius, who will assume charge as the CTO of the Data Center Group, which was earlier called the Enterprise Business Group.

Meanwhile, because of the management shakeup announced by Lenovo, some of the prominent Motorola executives will be leaving the company, including the Motorola President Rick Osterloh.
