Former Nokia chief executive Stephen Elop set to leave Microsoft

  • Stephen Elop, the former Nokia boss, will leave Microsoft amid a management reshuffle.

    Elop, who had joined the firm in 2015 when Microsoft bought Nokia’s handset business, had previously been considered a possible CEO of the tech giant, but the position eventually went to Satya Nadella.

    Nadella said that the changes being introduced would enable Microsoft to “deliver better products and services” at a faster pace.

    Elop was the Nokia chief executive from 2010 to 2014.
