Nokia imaging chief to resign

  • Nokia's imaging chief Damian Dinning is to resign from his position at the end of this month, the company announced in a statement on Saturday.

    Nokia's Chief Executive Stephen Elop has replaced most of the top management since he joined in late 2010. Dinnig is the latest of several executives to leave the ailing cellphone maker.

    Strong imaging capabilities in the new Lumia smartphones are a key feature for the former market heavyweight, which has lost significant market share in both high-end smartphones and cheaper handsets.

    In a post on Nokia's imaging fan site PureViewclub.com, Dinning said he did not want to move to Finland as part of the firm’s efforts to concentrate operations.

    He is set to join Jaguar Land Rover to head innovations in the field of connected cars.
