Nokia’s Weldon needs 10 years to invent the future
June 10, 2019 / fiercewireless
Marcus Weldon has two jobs Corporate CTO of Nokia and president of Nokia Bell Labs. How does he balance these two roles? I have a split personality,he quips.He could send the Virtual Marcus to do one of them, but then we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Suffice it to say that in all seriousness he interprets the CTO role as one in which he needs to look ahead and see the world as it should be. Bell Labs is where the technologies must be invented to help realize that vision.Either way, his work needs to result in Nokia being in a leadership position, and as part of that, he needs to be thinking 10 years ahead of everyone else.
