Motorola to add 400 jobs in Chicago

Tribune reporter

Motorola Solutions will add 400 jobs in Chicago by end of 2012, Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced today.

The jobs will be new positions in service, sales support and other areas, Motorola President and CEO Greg Brown said at a downtown news conference with the mayor.

"We're growing," Brown said to explain the decision. He also described Emanuel as very persuasive.

Motorola received no tax incentives as part of the deal, Emanuel said.

Spokesman Nicholas Sweers said the company has not yet determined how many of the 400 positions will be new and how many will involve relocating workers from elsewhere. But he said the relocated workers will come "primarily from outside the greater Chicago area."

The company has not figured out exactly where in Chicago the workers will be located, Sweers said.
