Motorola Solutions Inc. Chief Executive Greg Brown has been named to President Barack Obama’s Management Advisory Board, a group of former and current CEOs tasked with advising administration officials on how to bring private-sector practices to the government.

The White House made its announcement on Thursday and the group is scheduled to meet for the first time on Friday. Brown joins nine other corporate chiefs, including Jeffrey Kindler, the former CEO of Pfizer Inc., BET Networks CEO Debra Lee and American Red Cross CEO Gail McGovern.

According to the White House, the group will focus on productivity, application and customer service. Jeffrey Zients, deputy director for management at the Office of Management and Budget, chairs the board.

Schaumburg-based Motorola Solutions said in a statement that Brown’s “experience of working with both government and enterprise customers” makes him a good fit for the board. Brown already has ties with the administration and was involved in activities around Chinese President Hu Jintao’s visit to Chicago and Washington, D.C. in January.

Motorola Inc. split into two independent companies at the beginning of the year. Brown’s Motorola Solutions focuses on communications equipment for government and industrial clients such as public safety agencies and companies in retail and logistics.
