Florian Seiche has announced he is leaving his role as CEO of HMD after six years in the role.

In a LinkedIn post, Seiche thanked everyone from consumers, shareholders, partners and HMD’s ‘extremely committed and talented’ employees.

It is not known what the next role for Seiche is, but HMD has said that he has left to ‘pursue other opportunities.’

During his time at HMD, he has helped grow the feature phone market by reintroducing and reinventing classic Nokia designs and he has helped the brand become more sustainable.

He said in the post: “Our successes in taking smartphone leadership position in South Africa in 2021, winning strong smartphone market position in UK and USA markets, as well as the Enterprise and Services segments are also key milestones, all delivered with great commitment, creativity, and execution from our teams. 

“The recent launch of Circular, our sustainable subscription service which has been designed to reward users for keeping their phone for longer with sustainability at its core, demonstrates that we are innovating with purpose across the entire smartphone line up. 

“As I embark on my next chapter I wish HMD every success for the future.”
