Stephen Elop bestowed on the 2013 European Communication Award
Nokia's current CEO, Stephen Elop, is the first non-Finnish person to be leading the company. He was born in Canada on New Year's Eve, 1963, graduated computer engineering and management in Ontario and has 5 kids, 3 of which are triplets. On September 21, 2010 he took over the Nokia Corporation and this year, the European Association of Communication Directors (EACD) has awarded him with their prestigious award, yet another thing for the Canadian to add to his list of interesting facts about his life.

The bestowing of the prize was held at a gala ceremony at the European Communication Summit. The award itself honors superb achievements and is given to the person (or organization), whose communication efforts during the past year have been top-notch.

Previous winners of the award include Marc Bolland, CEO of Marks and Spencer (2012), Peter Löscher, CEO of Siemens (2011), and Sergio Marchionne, CEO of Fiat (2010).
