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.
