Corporate vice president of software applications and ecosystem, Motorola
Before Google’s mobile operating system came along, Motorola aggressively pursued Mobile Linux on phones. But once Android entered the public’s consciousness, Wyatt spearheaded a change in course. She has cultivated a strong community of developers who are not only innovating around Android, but also Motoblur, Motorola’s custom interface for Android devices. Given her background in successful developer relations at Apple and Palm, this comes as no surprise. And now that the mobile division has been split into an independent company, Wyatt has even more opportunity to show that Motorola Mobility Holdings can reach even greater heights.
Wyatt serves on the Linux Foundation’s board of directors.
