Nokia has confirmed details of executive appointments following its €15.6 billion ($17 billion) takeover of Alcatel-Lucent, which is formally set to become a part of the Finnish vendor next week.
Nokia Corp. (NYSE: NOK) had revealed details of the 13 appointments back in October, naming its own executives to ten of the senior positions and promoting three of Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU)'s IP and fixed-network experts to the remaining roles.

The leadership team is as follows:
Light Reading has also previously revealed that Marcus Weldon will become chief technology officer and president of Bell Labs at the combined company, transferring his current job titles over to Nokia next week. (See AlcaLu's Weldon Lands Nokia CTO Role.)
Even so, Weldon has not been included on what Nokia calls its "leadership team" list and seems likely to report to chief innovation and operating officer Marc Rouanne.
A number of other senior executives also appear to have missed out on the top jobs, including Hossein Moiin, Nokia's current chief technology officer.
Light Reading understands that Moiin will continue to be a part of the senior technology team but his precise role remains unclear.
Other possible casualties of the merger include Dave Geary, Alcatel-Lucent's wireless president; Igor Leprince, who currently heads Nokia's global services operation (which will become a part of the mobile group led by Samih Elhage); Philippe Keryer, Alcatel-Lucent's chief strategy and innovation officer; and Tim Krause, the French company's chief marketing officer.
None of those executives has made updates to his LinkedIn profile indicating a change in role.
