I am not sure an American CEO would be any better. There have been plenty of American CEOs before this one and they have all been poor performers. Motorola is not an innovative company anymore, it has not been for almost 0 years now. In the last 20 years, they have come up with 2 awesome products: StarTac and Razor (and people would line up to buy them). V60 was also another awesome product, but short lived.
Getting back to the current CEO, he is no good and is costing the company too much money, he is just less bad than Zander (remember the one in Armani suits flying on the company jets to play Golf in California).
