Risto Siilasmaa

Risto Siilasmaa, Chairman of Nokia, led the company in one of the most successful corporate reinventions ever. The legendary transactions he helped negotiate in just two years―the purchase of complete ownership of NSN, the sale of Nokia's core mobile phone business to Microsoft, and the acquisition of Alcatel-Lucent―pulled Nokia off a trajectory of certain failure and put it on the path to becoming what it is today, one of the world's most successful global technology leaders.
