By CBR Staff Writer

Mobile phone maker Sony Ericsson said that Bert Nordberg, current executive vice president of the Ericsson Group and head of Ericsson Silicon Valley, will join the company as co-president, effective September 1, 2009.

Nordberg will be based at Sony Ericsson’s global headquarters in London, and would replace Dick Komiyama as the president on October 15, 2009.

Carl-Henric Svanberg, president and CEO of Ericsson, said: Bert Nordberg has a strong track-record in the area of business realignment and was instrumental in the transformation of Ericsson in the years 2002 – 2003. I am confident he will be able to build upon the foundation Dick has created and lead the final stages of Sony Ericsson’s transformation.”

In addition, Howard Stringer, chairman, CEO and president of Sony Corp, and a member of the board of Sony Ericsson, will become chairman of the board of Sony Ericsson on October 15, 2009, replacing Carl-Henric Svanberg, who will become chairman of BP in January.
