Prodigal son Moloney returns to Motorola

Six months after leaving, Dan Moloney has returned to Motorola (NYSE: MOT) as president of the Motorola Mobility Business unit where he will report to Sanjay Jha, co-CEO of Motorola and CEO of Motorola Mobility.

While the move may be orders of magnitude large for Moloney, who began his career with General Instrument Corp.'s Jerrold Division before the company was acquired by Moto in 2000, it isn't geographically significant. When he left, Moloney only ventured down the road a bit from suburban Philadelphia and into the city where he served as president-CEO of Technitrol (NYSE: TNL).

The electronics components company acknowledged Moloney's departure as a chance "to pursue a unique opportunity at his former company, Motorola," and said he will remain on the Technitrol board of directors.
