Lockheed Martin, Mitsubishi and Motorola. Bravman started his career at Symbol Technologies where, during his 26-year tenure at the company, he held several positions with increasing responsibility and eventually assumed the role of chief executive officer and vice chairman. As CEO, Bravman led a major turnaround effort at Symbol, which paved the way for the company’s acquisition by Motorola in 2007.
