Nokia Said to Favor Siilasmaa as Chairman to Replace Ollila

January 05, 2012

Jan. 5 (Bloomberg) -- Nokia Oyj considers Risto Siilasmaa, the founder of software maker F-Secure Oyj, a frontrunner to succeed Chairman Jorma Ollila this year, a person familiar with the matter said.

No decision has been made because Nokia’s nomination committee hasn’t met yet to recommend a new chairman, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the plan isn’t public. Nokia declined to comment. Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat reported the news earlier today.
