Nokia Siemens Networks said Monday that Susan Spradley will lead the company’s North America region.
She replaces Mark Louison who earlier this year was named president of Nokia Inc., the mobile device manufacturer’s arm in the United States.
The company said Spradley and Louison will work closely together.
Spradley is the former president of Nortels global services and operations. She is a 20-year veteran in the telecommunications industry and has experience in services, operations, sales, customer service and global product line management.
