Punit Soni has been a familiar face in Motorola’s product announcements over the past few months. He was at the forefront of the Moto E launch and actively endorses the company’s products and software updates on social media. However, Soni has now decided to call it a day and leave Motorola Mobility. There’s no word on who will replace him as the VP of Product Management over at the company yet, but his departure has come as a surprise to many.
He didn’t cite a specific reason for leaving the company, but had this to say on about the work experience with Motorola:
“I still remember the first time I went to Libertyville, Illinois to visit the Motorola Campus. There was this sense of awe at being in a company whose invention, the cell phone, would forever change the world.
For the next couple of years, we worked hard to marry the agility of a modern internet services company with the legacy of the greatest telecommunications company in the world. We crafted a new portfolio of products, we rebuilt our software stack, we launched the Moto X, then G and then E. Motorola is now firmly on the path of regaining its place as one of the most relevant companies of the mobile era.”
It is being said that Soni left Motorola just in time to avoid any employee shuffling that could take place after the Lenovo acquisition is complete. Some are even suggesting that Soni could join Google and continue his work with the team there. However, most of this is mere speculation at this point and there’s very little data to back it up , so we suggest you take it with a pinch of salt.
