Ericsson's CTO Heads to Australia

Ericsson's CTO, HÃ¥kan Eriksson, who is currently based in Silicon Valley, will take on a new role as head of Ericsson's business in Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. The company expects to appoint a new CTO shortly.

Eriksson, whose wife is Australian, said "I have spent the last 25 years in Ericsson within the research & development organization and the last nine of those as CTO. When I took the job as CTO, the debate was whether 3G would ever appeal to the mass market... Although the CTO role has always meant staying very close to our customers, I now look forward to more directly support our customers in monetizing their networks in a world where technology and networks become increasingly more complex."
