Nokia (NYSE:NOK) has appointed Joerg Erlemeier chief operating officer and member of the company's Group Leadership Team (GLT), effective immediately. Erlemeier will report to Nokia President and CEO Rajeev Suri. Monika Maurer, who previously held the COO position, will support Erlemeier during a transition period and then leave Nokia to pursue new opportunities outside the company.
"I want to thank Monika for her contributions to Nokia, and Alcatel-Lucent before that. I warmly welcome Joerg to the GLT, and look forward to working together to further strengthen our disciplined operating model," said Rajeev Suri.
Erlemeier was most recently senior vice president, Nokia Transformation. He has more than 20 years of experience in various leadership positions in Nokia, including heading the Middle East and Africa region; leading Services in Asia-Pacific and Japan and North America; and serving as COO of the Mobile Networks business group.
