Motorola cuts marketing staff
Confirming the news, Motorola's marketing director of SE Asia Neil Stewart said: "As part of global redundancies that have been announced by Motorola, a number of people have had to unfortunately lose their jobs. Of course, it is no reflection on their competency."
Motorola is expected to lay off 3,000 people globally as part of the US$800 million cuts planned for 2009, across all businesses and functions.
The communications company had announced a third-quarter net loss of £245 million along with a drop in handset shipments of around 32 percent.
The company recently faced the sudden departure of its corporate VP and GM for Asia Ian Chapman-Banks.
