4 Outsiders That Could Lead HP Rescue

No. 4, Motorola chief Sanjay Jha

Now that Google (GOOG - Get Report) is in a $12.5 billion deal to acquire Motorola Mobility (MMI - Get Report), CEO Sanjay Jha could be called on to perform another death-defying deed elsewhere. You'll recall Jha came to Motorola from Qualcomm (QCOM) in 2009 and completely rebuilt the company around Google Android phones.

Not only did that avoid what looked to be certain doom for the phone maker, it revived Motorola enough to catch the interest of Google.

In tech turnarounds, there have been very few recent success stories, but Jha certainly authored one at Motorola. If called upon, he could try his hand with HP.

Strength: Has a big turnaround trophy with Google/Motorola.

Weakness: A deep wireless background isn't on HP's criteria list.
