Nokia's Nichols promoted to marketing director role
Nokia has promoted former channel marketing chief, John Nichols to head of marketing and Go To Market for Nokia UK and Ireland.
Nichols, whose appointment is effective immediately, will replace Will Harris, who was promoted to a global role last year.
Nichols previously worked in retail marketing at Woolworths Group, Sainsbury's and Oddbins, and joined Nokia 15 months ago to head up channel marketing.
He will oversee all aspects of marketing, customer marketing and Go To Market, reporting to Nokia UK MD Mark Loughran (pictured).
He said: 'It's an exciting time to be leading Nokia's marketing plan and consumer engagement in the UK.
'We have a great line-up of consumer activity ahead this year with Ovi Maps, multi big brand partnership apps coming to the Ovi Store and a number of great new devices hitting the market.'
