Dutta makes move to tennis association
Dutta has been instrumental in Sony Ericsson’s Walkman and Cyber-shot branding, and has also been behind the company’s sponsorship of women’s tennis.
Dutta’s replacement has been identified but wasn’t known as Mobile went to press. His identity will be available on Mobile’s website on Thursday (today). Dutta is believed to be taking a senior position in the tennis association as his next job. Dutta previously worked at T-Mobile, and his online profile claimed he launched the ‘first ever digital prepay service’ while he was at T-Mobile UK.
Colleagues credit Dutta as being a pivotal figure in the success of the Sony Ericsson joint venture in recent years after a tricky launch period.
