Former Motorola Executive Christy Wyatt Joins Citigroup

Citigroup said on Thursday that it had hired former Motorola enterprise unit head Christy Wyatt to lead its consumer and mobile efforts.

Wyatt, who left Motorola as the Google acquisition closed, will lead the technology teams at Citi that handle the bank’s Web, mobile and ATM efforts.

In an e-mail, Wyatt told AllThingsD she is looking forward to the new gig.

“Digital commerce is undergoing massive transformation and growth, as individuals and businesses around the world increasingly look for solutions that will empower their financial needs across all of the screens in their lives,” Wyatt said.

Former Samsung executive Omar Khan had been at Citi looking after the company’s mobile efforts, but left the bank to become co-CEO of Chinese security software maker NQ Mobile.

Wyatt will takeover Khan’s former duties as well as those of another executive who is retiring this summer.
