Ex-Nokia Marketing Chief Joins Huawei

Colin Giles bid adieu to Nokia in 2012, after 20 years of service to the company as head of sales, taking its products to the far-reaches of developing markets. He left in the midst of a herd-thinning operation by Nokia in the wake of poor financials. After a brief sabbatical, Giles emerged in China, where he's taken charge as Executive Vice President of sales and marketing at Huawei, fast emerging as a major player in the global smartphone business.
