NSN gave no reason for the departure, effective immediately, except to say it was part of a company transformation. It appointed chief operating officer Samih Elhage as successor.

The equipment maker has shown signs of a turnaround in recent quarters, helped by a massive restructuring drive last year that cut around 20,500 out of 74,000 jobs.
Nokia and Siemens have been looking to exit the joint venture through a buyout or public offering. Analysts expect a decision in the next few months.
Elhage joined NSN in March 2012, and has experience in private equity and management consulting, NSN said.
