Nokia European SVP leaving the company

2ce90b2We have  just been tipped that Nokia Europe senior vice president Victor Saeijs is leaving the company soon.

He has been a visible face of the company’s Windows Phone push over the course of this year, famously saying Nokia has to conquer USA or go bust, saying "Plan B is that Plan A must succeed."

Our source notes this is particularly bad news in the wake of other Nokia executives like Damian Dinning leaving, indicating a level of brain drain from the company which was not healthy.

We understand from our sources that he is leaving for personal reasons, to spend more time with his family, but it is a pity that his departure is coinciding with the first real traction Nokia’s new Windows Phone products are having .

We of course wish him well in his future ventures.
