Ollila says will be active as Nokia chairman

By : |December 19, 2005 0



HELSINKI: Nokia Chief Executive Jorma Ollila intends to be an active non-executive chairman when he steps back from the top executive role at the world’s biggest handset maker, he said in an interview published on Monday.

Ollila will spend two days a week dealing with Nokia business after he hands over as chief executive at the mobile phone giant to Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo from June 1, he told Finnish business magazine Arvopaperi.

“The intention is that it would be possible to use a couple of days (per week) for taking care of Nokia’s business and in that sense to be quite an active chairman,” he was quoted as saying.

“But of course, keeping in contact with the owners is typically a part of the CEO’s duties so that is not an area for a chairman of the board of directors,” Ollila added.
