London, UK -- Sony Mobile Communications today announced that Kunimasa Suzuki has been named President and CEO of Sony Mobile Communications, effective 16 May 2012, and Bert Nordberg, currently President and CEO, will step down from the leadership of the company. Bert Nordberg will become Chairman of Sony Mobile Communications' board.

As announced by Sony Corporation on 27 March, Corporate Executive Officer and Executive Vice President, Kunimasa (Kuni) Suzuki, will assume responsibility to oversee planning and design of all Sony's consumer products and services, with the aim of strengthening horizontal integration and enhancing the user experience across Sony's entire product and network service lineup. His responsibility includes overseeing the mobile business that Sony has identified as one of its core electronics business areas, including smartphones, tablets and PCs.

"Kuni has a vast experience in product planning and management in the information technology and mobile product business, as well as experience of cultivating business in emerging markets," said Kazuo Hirai, President and CEO of Sony Corporation. "He is a strong leader and the right person to oversee Sony Mobile Communications as we establish a new business structure as 'One Sony' intended to reinforce and accelerate our overall business management."

"Bert Nordberg has done an outstanding job in transforming Sony Ericsson, now Sony Mobile Communications, from a feature phone to a smartphone company," continued Kazuo Hirai. "I have enjoyed working with Bert and I would like to thank him for his vital contributions over the years, and I am glad that he will become the Board's chairman to support Kuni and the management team of Sony Mobile Communications during these critical phases of the company's integration with the wider Sony Group."

"During my years with Sony Ericsson and now Sony Mobile Communications, I've seen the mobile industry change at a rapid pace. We've shifted the company from feature phones to a smartphone company, and established Xperia(TM) as the Sony smartphone with consumers and operators around the world," said Bert Nordberg, outgoing President and CEO of Sony Mobile Communications. "Sony is a content, electronics and entertainment powerhouse and it has been a pleasure being part of the Sony team during both the joint venture and through the transition of becoming Sony Mobile Communications."

"Sony has identified digital imaging, game and mobile as the three core pillars of its electronics business, and smartphones are a cornerstone of this strategy," said Kunimasa Suzuki, Corporate Executive Officer, Executive Vice President of Sony Corporation. "I look forward to working more closely with our global operator customers and everyone at Sony Mobile Communications to drive the company's business and bring outstanding connected entertainment experiences to consumers around the world."

From 16 May 2012, Kunimasa Suzuki will assume the role of President and CEO of Sony Mobile Communications in addition to his role as Corporate Executive Officer, Executive Vice President of Sony Corporation. Kunimasa Suzuki will be based in Lund, Sweden and Tokyo, Japan.
