Nokia Imaging head Damian Dinning has reportedly taken the decision to quite the “loss-making” Finnish mobile phone manufacturer by the end of November, 2012. According to a Reuters' report, the company issued an official statement on the same.
The company said, "Following the relocation of key strategic roles to Finland, and with great reluctance, Damian Dinning has made a personal decision to leave the company effective 30 November 2012. We thank him for his service to the company and certainly wish him the best."
The man behind the camera technology on handsets like the headline-making, 41-megapixel Nokia 808 Pureviewand the new Nokia Lumia 920 device replaced most of the top management since he joined in late 2010 and Dinnig is the latest of several executives to leave.
Dinning did not want to move to Finland as part of the phonemakers' effort to concentrate operations and will join Jaguar Land Rover to head innovations in the field of connected cars, he said on Nokia’s imaging fan site PureViewclub.com.
Following his quitting news, Nokia’s imaging fan site PureViewclub.com reported earlier today that Dinning reiterated the reason given by Nokia UK, saying that his reason for leaving Nokia is his inability to move to Finland as was required of him.
Rather he officially declared that he will now be joining the Jaguar Land Rover group, where he will "take a role driving future innovations in the exciting new field of Connected Car". On this he explained that other than photography, cars are another lifelong passion and at Jaguar he will be "driving future innovations in the exciting new field of Connected Car."
