As tipped by ChannelNews a major shake up at Nokia Australia has been announced with the appointment of Chris Carr as the new General Manager effective from 1st January 2011.

Mr Carr takes over the reins from Emile Baak who leaves Nokia Australia after a two stint.

Mr Carr, who was formerly Nokia’s vice president for sales in South East Asia Pacific, said, “I’m incredibly excited to be moving back to Australia.  It has been a difficult decision to leave Singapore but it’s one that will not only benefit my family, but also allow me to re-establish my connections in Australia.” 

Colin Giles, Nokia’s senior vice president and head of global sales, said, “I want to thank Emile Baak who has done a great job  in Australia and New Zealand.  He has been instrumental in maintaining Nokia’s leading position in the region and we wish him all the very best.”

Carr continued, “It’s an exciting but challenging time ahead for Nokia both locally and globally.  We’ve got a lot of work to do but I’m confident we can continue to deliver solutions that people want, build on our footprint and strengthen mindshare, particularly at the high-end.

“I look forward to working with the team in Australian and New Zealand to deliver on our strategic promise around innovation, quality and efficient execution,” Carr said.

In other appointments, Steve Lewis has been named head of sales for Nokia Australia and New Zealand and Greg Clark assumes responsibility as head of retail for Australia and New Zealand.  

Steven Lewis returns to Australia after leading Nokia’s marketing organisation in Middle East Africa, based in Dubai.  Greg Clark moves over the Tasman from New Zealand where he was responsible for the Vodafone NZ account for Nokia.

Both appointments start immediately and will report to Mr Carr.
