Like a second coming, CEO, Florian Seiche says Nokia plans to lead the smartphone market again
HMD Global’s commitment is to make products that consumers will love, trust, and keep for long as they go about their daily needs
When we wrote about the rise, dominance and fall of Nokia phones, we were talking about the first coming of the phone brand that was in the hearts and minds of many people across Nigeria – we were all mostly emotionally attached to that brand.
If you talk about durability, you will only need to pick any of the Nokia 3310 or 1100 and be satisfied. When the conversation switched to affordability, that dominant phone brand was top of mind.
Speaking on the significance of the visit, the GM, West and Central Africa, Joseph Umunakwe said Florian is in Nigeria to understand the market personally as well as “align the company’s strategy to the outlook of the market.”
Commenting about the visit, Florian Seiche said:
“Nigeria has been a strategic location for our West African business. We recognise the innovative nature of the market and are committed to meeting and satisfying our customers. Our innovative devices are a testament to our commitment to being a customer-centric organisation.”
Justin Maier, sub-Saharan Africa, added,
“The visit is a high reflection of the impact the Nigerian business has had on the company. We continue to listen to our customers and design products that suit their everyday needs with devices they love, trust, and want to keep for longer.”
