Nokia Officially Installs New CTO, Replacing Former Meego Advocate

After the resignation of Rich Green, who left the company “for personal reasons” Nokia has announced that it has appointed Henry Tirri as the company’s permanent Chief Technology Officer (CTO), after the executive temporarily occupied the position.

Today’s announcement confirms that fact, with a Nokia statement noting that Mr Green was no longer a member of the Nokia Leadership Team and would now return to the U.S to “pursue new opportunities”.

Today  Nokia announced that Henry Tirri has been appointed executive vice president, Chief Technology Officer and a member of the Nokia Leadership Team, effective September 22, 2011. He reports directly to President and CEO Stephen Elop.

Nokia was criticised for its dedication to the Symbian operating system, with it suggested that Green’s decision to leave the vendor may have been as a result of Nokia’s announcement that it was to move away from the co-development of the MeeGo platform, an operating system that Green is reported to have wished to continue developing.
