GENEVA -- ST-Ericsson, a world leader in wireless platforms and semiconductors, announced today some key changes in its organization, appointing a new Chief Technology Officer and simplifying its R&D and product organization structures to further enhance execution efficiency and accelerate time-to-market.

Mats Norin has been appointed Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer. Norin has been heading up Ericsson's Mobile Broadband Modules business which he started in 2007 and took from a niche market to a mass market product, lowering the barriers for PC and tablet OEMs so that connectivity can be included at a reasonable cost.

Dan Redin, Head of Modem and common IP development, will return to Ericsson. Following this, and with the objective of simplifying the organization while prioritizing business continuity, all the R&D activities of the company hardware design and software development are being moved under the responsibility of Ronen Ben-Hamou.

Additionally, to reflect the new strategic focus on platforms and system solutions, all of the current product divisions will be grouped into a single product sector called Smart Platform Solutions which will be led by Marc Cetto. Under this single product sector, Cetto will oversee the four business units covering smartphone & tablet platforms, thin modems, entry & legacy and connectivity solutions.
