Things aren’t getting any better at Nokia, with news of a resignation coming from the company, which announced in recent weeks that it would cut 10,000 employees. Juho Sarvikas, an important role in the rebirth of the brand, announced his departure from the company.
Considering the company has a launch event on April 8th, the timing of this separation doesn’t seem right.
Nokia’s critical name Juho Sarvikas has left the company
Juho Sarvikas, the company’s Chief Product Officer and Co-Manager of the North American market, announced his departure from the company on his Twitter account. In his post, he said:
“After 15 amazing years with Nokia and HMD, I made a difficult decision, it’s time to move on. I am very proud of what we have achieved together and know that the success of HMD & Nokia phones will continue. Follow @nokiamobile for news about Nokia. Thank you for everything.”
After amazing 15 years with Nokia and HMD, I have made the tough decision that is time to move on. I'm so proud of what we have achieved together and know that the success of HMD & Nokia phones will continue. Follow @nokiamobile for Nokia Phones news. Thank you for everything 🙏 pic.twitter.com/ZyCIsu7ouV— Juho Sarvikas (@sarvikas) March 26, 2021
Juho Sarvikas, who had worked at the company for 15 years, resigned unexpectedly. His lateness with flagship phones such as the Nokia 8 was one of his worst moves in recent years. Despite this, he was one of Nokia’s most important figures, and the company was preparing to take future steps, such as its 5G operations.
Nokia is not the only company to lose a major name this week, and Xiaomi’s Chief Financial Officer recently announced its move to ByteDance. Since Juho Sarvikas has not changed his Twitter bio and LinkedIn profile, we do not know which company he will work for.
