Is this the downfall of Nokia? Arto Nummela CEO of HMD Global who is the marketing partner of Nokia which designs and sells Nokia branded phones, is resigning from the company with an immediate effect and by a mutual agreement.
Currently, Nokia is still making efforts in regaining its grounds in the smartphone market because Samsung and Apple are still ruling it and this resignation didn’t come at the right time. I must say.
Only this year, the company had released three Nokia branded smartphones – Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 and a revamped version iconic Nokia 3310. Meanwhile, it was also reported that Nokia is also preparing to launch another set of phones – Nokia 2, Nokia 7, Nokia 8 and Nokia 9. The Nokia 8 will be launched on July 31st.
However, he has been replaced. HMD President Florian Seiche, who previously worked at Siemens, Orange, HTC and Nokia, has been successfully appointed as the new CEO of the company.
Do you think Nokia will still fall after the resignation of the helping CEO, Arto Nummela?
