Former Finnish Prime Minister Esko Aho is leaving his post on the Board of Directors of Nokia to join the faculty of Harvard University.
Aho is to leave his position as the company’s Executive Vice President of Corporate Relations and Responsibility to take on the post of Senior Fellow at the Mossavar-Rahmany Center for Business and Government at Harvard's Kennedy School.
Aho will leave his Nokia post in late August. However, he still plans to serve as a part-time advisor on corporate relations for Nokia.
In his new post, Aho will be involved in research on how the role of the state is changing in the maintenance of global well-being and competitiveness.
