However, TeliaSonera’s CEO Lars Nyberg and I have concluded that my skills and experience are better utilized in a different role. As such a role is not available within TeliaSonera, we have agreed that I will leave the Group. While I’m now seeking for a new personal challenge I would like to send a sincere thanks to all colleagues in TeliaSonera,” says Juho Lipsanen.
