Sony Mobile Swedish headquarters moving back to the Tokyo mothership, 15% job cuts on tap
Sony will relocate its mobile division headquarters from Lund, Sweden, where they had been due to the partnership with Ericsson, back to Tokyo. 650 job cuts are expected initially because of the relocation, for a total of 1, 000, including consultants, or 15% of the Sony Mobile workforce, by March 2014.
Kunimasa Suzuki, President and CEO of Sony Mobile, commented on the restructuring:
Sony has identified the mobile business as one of its core businesses and the Xperia™ smartphone portfolio continues to gain momentum with customers and consumers worldwide.
We are accelerating the integration and convergence with the wider Sony group to continue enhancing our offerings, and a more focused and efficient operational structure will help to reduce Sony Mobile's costs, enhance time to market efficiency and bring the business back to a place of strength.
