Forbes reports that Finnish network gear company Nokia discontinued the role of Chief Information Officer inside the company. The role was last held by Ursula Soritsch-Renier and her responsibilities will now be handled by Bhaskar Gorti, president of Nokia’s software unit.
Forbes said that this change occurred early in the year, but Nokia went public with it now. This isn’t the first role in leadership team that Nokia discontinued in an effort of internal reorganisation to make the company more efficient. In November last year, Nokia announced the end of the COO (Chief Operating Officer) role inside the company.
Nokia is now in a critical period for the company because of the 5G rollout and tense global situation with Huawei.
