Simon Beresford-Wylie, currently Executive Vice President and General Manager of Networks at Nokia, will assume the position of CEO of the new company. Peter Schoenhofer. currently Member of the Executive Board of Siemens AG Austria will assume the position of CFO

Based on the 2005 calendar year, the combined company had EUR 15.8 billion in pro forma annual revenues and is expected to start operations with 60,000 employees.

Nokia Siemens Networks will have its operational headquarters in the metropolitan area of Helsinki, Finland, and will have a strong regional headquarters in Munich, Germany, where three of the future five divisions of the new company will be based.

The remaining Wireless Modules business will be integrated into the Siemens group Automation and Drives as of 1 October 2006.
