Re: Right man for the job
I agree. Weldon seems to be the logical choice at this stage, with an excellent career and long experience in the field, handling this role for more than 10 years now.

Re: Right man for the job
Weldon certainly seems like the best choice to take on the Nokia role. With his vast experience not to mention he wrote the book on "how networks will transform in an era of "digitization" and the "connection of everything." Looking forward to seeing how the transition will work out versus competitors who seem to be playing a bit of catch up.

Re: Right man for the job
Nice scoop Ray.

Marcus Weldon will be an excellent CTO of the combined company. It's a massive role, with huge responsibility, etc. 

I would like to know what Hossein Moiin's role will be. He doesn't seem the type to go quietly. That said, I've never met him.

Right man for the job
Agree with Ray. Nikia should be happy he is staying given reduced scope (innovation toys) although I'm sure with bell labs there will be ample oppty to innovate. Clearly one of the more senior n-2 roles in the new company D

Re: Bone
Channelling the direction and efforts of Bell Labs into the broader group is a job in itself and that, I think, requires a certain type of individual, one who can motivate and also who gets the tech evolution story. I think Weldon has proved his worth on all these front during the past few years and it would have been a mistake to not let him continue the role at Nokia. 

So I think this is more than a bone thwon at ALU -- I think Weldon is the right person for this job.

Bone
Sounds like management have thrown a bone to the ALU staff, though hard to envisage his role given the existence of the CIOO. He's quite articulate so perhaps he will be the face of Nokalu at industry events.
