Motorola Mobility Board Loses Hambrecht

Posted Aug 17, 2011

William R. Hambrecht has left the Motorola Mobility Board of Directors, following the company’s recent acquisition by Google. TechCrunch reports that there are 9 members remaining on the board, but notes that Motorola’s board will be unnecessary once the deal with Google is finalized. Hambrecht is a banker and is the chairman and CEO of his own company WR Hambrecht + Co.

Hambrecht is also responsible for co-founding Hambrecht & Quist and the United Football League. He was on AOL’s board but left after AOL bought Huffington Post.
