Sony Ericsson announced that Najmi Jarwala, President of Sony Ericsson USA and Head of Region North America (comprising the US and Canada markets), has decided to leave at the end of March to pursue other career opportunities.
Dick Komiyama, President of Sony Ericsson, said, “Under Najmi’s leadership we have redefined our North American strategy, built operational excellence and strengthened our total presence considerably in this very important market. We are sad to see him leave Sony Ericsson after more than three successful years, but at the same time we wish him all the best for his future.”
Najmi Jarwala said “It has been an incredibly rewarding time for me and we have achieved a lot together in North America. We have introduced an increasing number of new products, grown market share, built operator relationships and, perhaps most importantly, have laid the foundation for North America to play a key role in the long term growth and success of Sony Ericsson. I have been privileged to have led a team of passionate, creative and innovative people at Sony Ericsson and I wish them every success.”
Effective April 1st, Anders Runevad, EVP & Head of Global Sales & Marketing, will take on the role of President of Sony Ericsson USA & Head of Region North America.
