Nokia Maker HMD Global Appoints New A/NZ Boss
HMD Global has promoted Brenden Folitarik to Country Manager for A/NZ and the Pacific Islands, a key growth area for the business.
Folitarik was former carrier sales manager for HMD. Before this, he worked in various telecommunications roles at Vodafone, Samsung and Alcatel for close to two decades.
“It’s truly an exciting time to be a part of HMD Global and I am motivated by the opportunity that lies ahead as we continue in our mission to connect the world without costing the earth,” Folitarik said.
He replaces James Robinson, now HMD’s general manager of North and West Europe.
“I know that Brenden brings with him the experiences the region needs right now, as we launch our most sustainable offering,” Robinson said.
“Brenden has almost two decades of experience in telecommunications, combined with a history of leading high-performance teams, and developing technology-savvy talent is a great asset to HMD Global and the region.”
