Head of Europe des­ig­nated for com­bined Nokia and Al­ca­tel- Lu­cent

OffComm News - - PEOPLE MOVES -

Nokia has con­firmed that Markus Borchert has been cho­sen to be­come the head of Europe, as part of the planned com­bi­na­tion of Nokia and Al­ca­tel- Lu­cent, af­ter and sub­ject to the suc­cess­ful clos­ing of the pub­lic ex­change of­fer for Al­ca­tel- Lu­cent se­cu­ri­ties which was an­nounced on April 15, 2015.

All be­ing well, Borchert would over­see the com­bined com­pany's cus­tomer op­er­a­tions across Europe, driv­ing the ex­e­cu­tion of strat­egy and en­sur­ing su­pe­rior cus­tomer ser­vice, un­der­pinned by a strong fo­cus on in­no­va­tion and qual­ity. Cur­rently se­nior vice pres­i­dent Mar­ket Europe at Nokia Net­works, he pre­vi­ously served as Pres­i­dent of the Greater China Re­gion, from 2012 to 2015; and be­fore that was head of cus­tomer op­er­a­tions of the Greater China re­gion.

Ashish Chowd­hary, chief cus­tomer op­er­a­tions of­fi­cer, said: "We are de­lighted to an­nounce the ap­point­ment of Markus Borchert as des­ig­nated head of Europe. He brings valu­able re­gional ex­pe­ri­ence and ex­per­tise, and would be a great as­set to the man­age­ment team. I look for­ward to work­ing with him as we con­tinue to in­no­vate on be­half of our cus­tomers, de­liv­er­ing lead­ing prod­ucts and ser­vices and po­si­tion­ing Nokia as the foun­da­tion of seam­less con­nec­tiv­ity for peo­ple and things, wher­ever they are."
