Ericsson’s head of marketing and communications Helena Norrman is leaving, the Swedish telecom equipment giant announced Wednesday.
Norrman resigned to “pursue opportunities outside the company,” Ericsson said, and will depart by June 30. Ericsson says it’s already started the recruitment process to find a replacement.
Norrman has been with the company for more than a decade and served on Ericsson’s executive team since 2010, most recently as SVP, chief marketing and communications officer and head of marketing and corporate relations.
“Helena has been instrumental in reshaping and modernizing Ericsson’s global marketing and communications strategy and function,” said Ericsson President and CEO Börje Ekholm in a statement. “With a deep understanding of the company’s priorities she has helped Ericsson navigate through periods of both massive change and considerable challenges. Helena has been a valued member of the Executive Team and I wish her all the best in her future ventures.”
In late January 2018 Ericsson merged its marketing & communications and sustainability & public affairs groups into the new Group Function Marketing & Corporate Relations unit, led by Norrman. This move was part of broader changes to the company’s group structure and its executive team.
