Sales chief Marsden leaves Sony Ericsson
Sony Ericsson global head of sales Peter Marsden has left the company after nine years.
It is understood Marsden, who had only been in his current role for two months, is likely to take on a sales director role for RIM in the UK.
Sony Ericsson confirmed Marsden’s departure, saying only that he was going to a ‘rival manufacturer’.
Marsden took on the global sales position at Sony Ericsson in May 2010. Prior to that, he was head of sales for Western Europe and global customers. He started at Sony Ericsson in January 2001 and since then has held a number of roles, including head of the manufacturer’s Vodafone Global Customer Unit.
He was tasked with developing strategic account management relationships and a partnership approach, both on a global and local level, as well as developing a product roadmap in line with customer requirements. Prior to Sony Ericsson, Marsden held positions at Sony and Panasonic.
