MOTOROLA EXPANDS ORGANIZATION TO INCREASE FOCUS ON INTERNATIONAL MARKETS

 ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill., June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Motorola's Cellular Infrastructure Group (CIG) has expanded its operations in the international arena and named key executives to meet the increasing needs of these markets.
 Pertti Johansson has been promoted to vice president and general manager, International Cellular Infrastructure Division (ICID), which covers all of Asia and the Pacific, except for Japan, and the regions of Africa, Middle East and the Eastern Newly Independent States of the former Soviet Union. Johansson's previous responsibilities have included market development activities for Europe, Latin America and Japan. Johansson joined Motorola in 1986 as the director of international cellular operations and was appointed a Motorola vice president in 1990.
 In China, ICID will continue to broaden its in-country operations to support the tremendous growth of cellular systems. This expansion comes from the dramatic increase of signed contracts and deliveries in process to date of more than 100 systems in 17 provinces and two cities. Tom Hinton, who has been named general manager of China Operations, along with John Reynolds, who has been named assistant general manager of China Operations, reporting into ICID, will focus on these activities.
 Also in Asia, CIG has elevated its Japan operations to division level status and established the Japan Cellular Infrastructure Division (JCID) reporting directly into CIG. To continue the successes in this market, Richard Sell has been promoted to vice president and general manager, JCID. Prior to this position, Sell successfully managed CIG's Asia-Pacific growing businesses. Sell joined Motorola in 1974 as a development engineer and has held technical and product management positions across a number of groups at Motorola.
