Nokia Said to Near CEO Pick for Future Beyond Handsets

Nokia Oyj, seeking a successor to former Chief Executive Officer Stephen Elop, is focusing on insiders including Rajeev Suri as it narrows a months-long search for a manager to set a new strategy at the wireless-technology company, according to people familiar with the matter.

Suri, the head of Nokia’s network-equipment unit, is among applicants for the job, said the people, asking not to be named because the discussions are confidential. Finance Chief Timo Ihamuotila has also been considered, said one of the people.
