On Wednesday after close of trading, Motorola Solutions announced that its chief financial officer, Edward J. Fitzpatrick, "is no longer be serving as Chief Financial Officer." Whether this was a resignation or a firing was not disclosed.

  • 16,040 stock options, likewise vesting over three years
  • and other "compensatory and benefit plans and arrangements available to [the company's] most senior executive officers."

Motorola Solutions is currently in the process of finding a permanent replacement for Fitzpatrick.
