Heading into a challenged first quarter, Sony Ericsson today announced its president of Sony Ericsson USA and head of the North American region Najmi Jarwala is leaving the company at the end of the month. His stated reason for departure was to seek other career opportunities.
Jarwala has been with the company for three years, in charge of redefining Sony Ericsson’s North America strategy and strengthening its presence here.
“It has been an incredibly rewarding time for me and we have achieved a lot together in North America,” Jarwala said in a press release. “We have introduced an increasing number of new products, grown market share, built operator relationships and, perhaps most importantly, have laid the foundation for North America to play a key role in the long term growth and success of Sony Ericsson.”
The company hasn’t announced a successor for Najmi yet, but Anders Runevad, executive vice president of Sony Ericsson and head of global sales and marketing, will take on the position’s responsibilities in the interim.
