Ericsson appoints chief strategy officer

Ericsson has upped senior vice president and member of its executive leadership team, Rima Qureshi, to SVP and chief strategy officer for Ericsson group. 

In her new role Qureshi will drive the company’s mergers and acquisitions strategy and will also serve as chairman of business unit modems.

Qureshi first joined Ericsson in 1993 and since then has held a number of leadership roles across R&D, sales, and services, including latterly running the business unit overseeing CDMA mobile systems.

She has been part of Ericsson’s executive leadership team since 2010 and has nearly 30 years’ experience in the global telecommunications and IT industry.

“Rima’s comprehensive experience in driving both business and M&As, along with a solid track record in strategy development and execution, makes her ideal for the job,” said Ericsson president and CEO Hans Vestberg.

Qureshi’s appointment is effective as of May 1, 2014.
