Stephen Elop new chief innovator for Australia’s Telstra
The former Microsoft executive excoriated by some industry watchers for the collapse of Nokia Mobile Phones, Stephen Elop, has re-emerged down under. Telstra says Elop is being appointed to the new role of Group Executive Technology, Innovation and Strategy, “leading Telstra’s strategy to become a world class technology company”. Telstra cites Elop’s “deep technology experience” and “innate sense of customer expectations” as grounds for this insane decision.
The Register pretty much sums it up in a small piece.
