Why Him? Ah, sweet convergence. We’ve been talking about it for more than a decade now and yet it seems like we never reach that summit. Well, Moloney and his excellent team of marketers, evangelists and techies at Motorola are working hard to get at least part of the way toward a fully networked world. And he’s inviting cable along for the ride. Motorola’s “Follow Me” concept aims to marry devices within the home to form a connected ecosystem. Meanwhile, Motorola has a great team in place. John Burke, SVP/GM of Motorola Home and Networks Mobility, has helped Motorola’s digital video business achieve double-digit growth with end-to-end digital video products enabling targeted advertising, switched digital video, advanced video processing and content mobility products. Moloney’s next challenge: enhancing seamless mobility for cable customers despite recent uncertainty over cable’s Sprint jv Pivot. But consumers, it seems, have spoken. And Motorola is well positioned to respond to whatever the market brings.  MG

 

Dan Moloney
The cable industry’s biggest challenge in 2008 is: “Faster innovation.”
The coolest new cable tech is: “The emergence of mobility – being able to access to your entertainment and information content whenever and where ever you are.”
Top personal achievement in 2007: “Successfully consolidating our home and networks businesses into a cohesive business focused on the convergence of the wired and wireless technologies delivering personal media experiences.”
In my free time, I like to: “Read… and avoid airports and airplanes.”
My most embarrassing cable moment was: “I haven’t had one recently, thank goodness!”
Favorite piece of tech: “The Motorola Q – I can’t live without it.”
Least favorite piece of tech: “The Motorola Q – I can’t live without it.”
My perfect vacation goes like this: “Relaxing on an isolated island without phones or email.”
