Nokia confirms replacement for Loughran

Nokia has confirmed that Sami Lehtinen will take over from Mark Loughran as general manager for the UK and Ireland at the beginning of next month.

Lehtinen is currently Nokia’s head of retail and will take over as acting general manager from 1 October, when Loughran leaves to become president of new business at TV set-top-box maker Pace.

Lehtinen will head the Finnish company’s bid to boost sales of its flagship N8 and C7 handsets, which it unveiled at Nokia World last week, in the run-up to Christmas.

The UK reshuffle follows recent moves in Nokia’s boardroom which saw Stephen Elop take over from Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo ad CEO amid other changes.
