Nokia names Sanjay Goel as president of global services, member of Group leadership team
Nokia has appointed Sanjay Goel as president of global services and member of the Group’s leadership team, effective 1 April.
His new role will see Goel reporting to Nokia president and CEO Rajeev Suri. “Igor Leprince, who previously held the Global Services position, will support Goel during a transition period and then leave Nokia to pursue opportunities outside the company,” the firm said.
“I want to thank Igor for his contributions to Nokia. I warmly welcome Sanjay to the GLT, and look forward to working together to further strengthen Global Services,” added Suri.
Goel – who most recently served as head of Global Services Sales – brings with him a decade’s experience of senior leadership roles in Services at Nokia. He has a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering with a specialisation in Electronics and Communications from the Manipal Institute of Technology in India.
Following this change from 1 April, Nokia’s Group Leadership Team will comprise Rajeev Suri, Basil Alwan, Hans-Juergen Bill, Kathrin Buvac, Ashish Chowdhary, Joerg Erlemeier, Barry French, Sanjay Goel, Bhaskar Gorti, Federico Guillén, Gregory Lee, Kristian Pullola, Marc Rouanne, Maria Varsellona and Marcus Weldon.
