San Diego -- Qualcomm Incorporated announced that Len Lauer, chief operating officer, has resigned and accepted a CEO role at another company.
This organizational change provides an opportunity to re-align Qualcomm's business groups. As a result, the Qualcomm MEMS Technologies (QMT) organization will now report to Steve Mollenkopf, EVP and president, Qualcomm CDMA Technologies (QCT). With the display business entering an important phase of expansion, close partnership with QCT will help QMT as they work with device manufacturers and tackle the challenges of commercializing, scaling and evolving the mirasol product line. All remaining services businesses will now report to Steve Altman, president.
"During the past three years, Len's leadership and expertise have helped Qualcomm expand business opportunities and further strengthen its relationships with operators and content providers. We are thankful to him for his service and wish him the best as he pursues new opportunities," said Dr. Paul E. Jacobs, chairman and CEO, Qualcomm.
