Leaving Nokia, looking for the next step

Leaving Nokia

The last day of August was also my last day at Nokia. After 11 years at the company I took the plunge just like some of my friends and colleagues.

A friend who left Nokia some years ago to found his own company has repeatedly said that working at Nokia is the best MBA you could ever have, and I tend to agree.

I worked in global and area roles, executed projects in tens of countries in some cases reaching millions of people in one of the fastest-moving industries in the planet. I shared projects with incredible people and had a chance to see the world. I worked in services product management back in the days of ringtones, in European sales when the N90, N73 & N95 redefined what a smartphone could be, in digital marketing launching internet services and in sponsorships when we ran the partnerships with the Fedération Internationale de Basketball and the World Rally Championship.

Even if it had its challenges, especially during the last few years, I will always be thankful for the chances I had and the friendships I made there. Thank you for the ride and for the lessons learned.

Now it is time to spend some time with my family, recharge my batteries, meet people and start forming an idea of what I want to do next. If the past is any indication, I know it will be tough but great.

If you want to know what I can do and would be interested in offering me an opportunity, there’s always my portfolio and LinkedIn. 😉
