Power 50 Profile: John Harber, UK managing director, Sony Ericsson
Buyers at operators and retailers have welcomed John Harber at Sony Ericsson since he took the UK MD job two-and-a-half years ago. The Sony veteran grew Sony Ericsson’s share to just short of Nokia’s dominance in the UK in the run-up to Christmas – a remarkable achievement for a manufacturer with no products in the ultra-low-end category. He has assembled a strong team in Farnborough and has strengthened the manufacturer’s relationships in the industry. He has worked hard on fixing the forecasting and delivery problems of the past.
