Nokia UK and Ireland head of retail Sami Lehtinen is to replace Mark Loughran (pictured) as UK and Ireland general manager on October 1. Loughran took over from Simon Ainslie as general manager in late 2008, having previously held the role of sales director.

Loughran said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Nokia and making the decision to leave such a great company has not been easy. I’m immensely proud of what we’ve achieved since I joined in 2007 and I leave behind an amazing group of highly talented and dedicated people. I personally feel very fortunate to have led Nokia UK and I wish Sami and all the team the very best for the future.

“Nokia is well-positioned for success in the years ahead and leave Nokia UK and Ireland in great shape for the second half of 2010 with Nokia N8 and C7 hitting the streets over the next few weeks and the ongoing rollout of Ovi services and apps”.
