Nokia Appoints Tarun Chhabra as New India Head Amid Global Restructuring

New Delhi: Tarun Chhabra, previously the head of mobile networks and senior vice president at Nokia, has been appointed as the new head of Nokia's operations in India as part of the company's restructuring efforts.

In an official statement, Nokia confirmed Chhabra's appointment as the country head for India, effective from April 2024.

The transition comes as Sanjay Malik, the former senior vice president, prepares to retire from Nokia by March 31, 2024. Chhabra will assume his responsibilities during this period.

Malik, who served as the head of India's global customer experience and sales division, has been instrumental in leading Nokia's operations in the Indian market for nearly eight years.
Under Malik's leadership, Nokia made significant strides in the Indian market, reporting to Rick Corker, Nokia's chief customer experience officer.

Nokia's decision to appoint Chhabra aligns with its global restructuring plan announced in October last year, which includes reducing its workforce by 11,000 to 14,000 employees worldwide.

On October 19, 2023, Nokia unveiled its strategic changes and cost-cutting measures aimed at fostering long-term growth and addressing market uncertainties.
In addition to internal changes, Nokia recently inked a 5G patent cross-license agreement with OPPO, a leading global smartphone brand, covering essential cellular technologies developed by the company.
