It’s not the first time you hear the demands for Elop the be fired. This time it comes from a people that at least have ever so slight influence to Nokia.
Timo Rothovius, Chairman of Finnish Association of Stock Investors has received overwhelming amount of demands from their members for Elop to be fired thanks to the strategy they change that they deem to have been failed.
Equity investors have been required to collect power of attorney required to organize an extraordinary general meeting. – Timo Rothovius
Rothovius wants to remind investors that Elop is enjoying full support from the Board of Directors and it’s Board of Directors inside Nokia that are accountable for strategy.
Since Elop enjoys the full support of the Board of Directors, it’s the Board of Directors that would need to be changed. - Timo Rothovius
Something that in the current situation would add more harm than good.
Rothovius also thinks that leaving MeeGo was the right decision. It will be seen was taking Windows Phone the right thing to do though.
