Sony Ericsson U.S. Head Najmi Jarwala Steps Down Amid Heavy Losses

Posted Mar 24, 2009

Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications announced earlier this week that Najmi Jarwala is stepping down.  Jarwala was the President of Sony Ericsson USA and the Head of Region North America.   He has stepped down to “pursue other opportunities.”  Jarwala worked at Sony for three years.

“It has been an incredibly rewarding time for me and we have achieved a lot together in North America,? stated Jarwala. ?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. I have been privileged to have led a team of passionate, creative and innovative people at Sony Ericsson and I wish them every success.”

Jarwala will be replaced by Anders Runevad starting April 1.  Runevad is the Executive Vice President of Sony Ericsson and the Head of Global Sales & Marketing.
