 /REPEATING FOR POINTS NEEDED/
 SCHAUMBURG, Ill., March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT)


announced today that James A. Norling, executive vice president of Motorola and president of the Semiconductor Products Sector, has been appointed president, Motorola Europe, Middle East and Africa.
 He succeeds David K. Bartram, who is retiring June 30 after 32 years at Motorola. He has been executive director, Motorola Europe, for the last three years.
 Thomas D. George, currently executive vice president and assistant general manager of the Semiconductor Products Sector, will succeed Norling as president and general manager of the sector. Murray A. Goldman, senior vice president and general manager of the Microprocessor and Memory Technologies Group, will succeed George as assistant general manager of the sector. The changes are effective April 1.
 Gary Tooker, president and chief operating officer of Motorola, said Norling will also serve as chairman of a new European management board. The role of the board, Tooker said, "will be to work to strengthen Motorola's overall position in Europe in areas where multi-business teamwork brings value to our customers or employees."
 Bartram "has made significant contributions in establishing our company-wide framework in Europe," Tooker said. "We have continued to expand the depth and breadth of sector and group businesses due to our success in the rapidly growing wireless communications and semiconductor businesses."
 Norling, who will move from Phoenix to Motorola's European corporate office near London, will select senior Motorola general managers in Europe to be members of the new board. The board members will continue their present roles and direct reporting relationships as leaders of their European business activities. Norling also will select key European corporate department heads to participate on the board. He will speak for the Office of the Chief Executive on company-wide issues in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
 Norling joined Motorola in 1965 and managed several semiconductor operations before becoming general manager of the International Semiconductor Group in 1981. He was named senior vice president and assistant general manager of the Semiconductor Products Sector in 1985 and became general manager the following year.

Before becoming assistant general manager of the sector in 1986, he had been general manager of the Internal Operations Group, the Bipolar Integrated Circuits Group, the Standard Logic and Integrated Circuits Group, and the IC Wafer Manufacturing Group.

He became director of microprocessor operations in 1976, and in 1984 was named general manager of the Microprocessor Products Group, which became the Microprocessor and Memory Technologies Group in 1990.
 Bartram, who joined Motorola in 1960, was assistant general manager of the Communications Sector before his appointment as executive director of Motorola Europe in 1990. He was general manager of the sector's Government Markets Division, and later was named head of the Communications International Group.
