Sony Ericsson announced that Najmi Jarwala, president of Sony Ericsson USA and head of its North America region, is leaving the company at the end of the month.
The company said he’s leaving to pursue other career opportunities.
“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,” said Dick Komiyama, president of Sony Ericsson, in a statement. “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.”
Jarwala said the company has achieved a lot in North America, introducing more new products, growing market share and building operator relationships.
The company said a separate announcement regarding Najmi’s successor will be made in due course. In the interim, Anders Runevad, executive vice president of Sony Ericsson and head of Global Sales & Marketing, will take on Jarwala’s responsibilities.
Last week, Sony Ericsson said worldwide, it expects to report selling 14 million handsets in the first quarter, down 36 percent from a year ago.
