Business Roundtable is an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies working to promote a thriving economy and expanded opportunity for all Americans through sound public policy.
Greg Brown, 56, is chairman and chief executive officer of Motorola Solutions where he has led the company for a decade. Under Brown’s leadership, this 90-year old company has been completely transformed.

Since the company split on January 1, 2011, annualized total shareholder return has averaged approximately 25% a year.
