According to sources, when software giant Microsoft concludes the acquisition of Nokia’s handset business, an announcement elevating Suri will be made by the end of March or April.  After the acquisition, Nokia will be left with the telecom equipment, location-based services and advanced technologies business.

Suri, who moved to Nokia in 1995, earlier worked in India with ICL and the RPG Group in corporate business development for new ventures and strategic planning.

Suri, who has headed Nokia Solutions and Networks (NSN) since October 2009, has been credited for ‘presiding over consistently improving results leading to the successful turnaround and restructuring of the company’.

If chosen, Suri will join an elite club of Indians heading global firms, like PepsiCo Chairman Indra Nooyi, Ajay Banga, President and Chief Executive Officer of MasterCard, Anshu Jain of Deutsche Bank, etc.
