Today (June 24th) Nokia Corporation made an announcement that the Pekka Lundmark will start his new role as President and CEO of Nokia on August 1st 2020, one month earlier than previously communicated. Rajeev Suri will leave his current position on July 31, 2020 and continue to serve as an advisor to the Nokia Board until January 1, 2021.
The earlier start date is due to Fortum having appointed a new CEO as of July 1, 2020 and after a one-month transition period Pekka is available to take over at Nokia. We hope the new Chief Executive Officer will take some good decisions & will make this Finnish brand more visible by introducing consumer electronics products.
Stay safe & stay tuned for more updates 🙂
