Nokia appoints Stephen Elop as new CEO

Nokia has just gotten hold of soon-to-be ex-Microsoft employee, Stephen Elop, to be their new CEO as well as President from September 21st onwards. Currently, Elop heads Microsoft’s Business Division and has had stints with Juniper Networks, Adobe Systems, and Macromedia. Hailing from the Great White North, we do hope that the leadership transition for the Finnish company will help them get back into the smartphone game. For those who wish they could be at the press conference that will be held at at Nokia’s head office in Espoo, Finland, you can log in at 13:00 (CET+1). The press conference itself will be webcast live through these two channels – www.nokia.com/press or http://www.nokia.com/press/media_resources/audio/nokia-webcasts. [Press Release]
