Nokia, the Finland-based global technology company, has chosen JLL to provide project management office and portfolio manager services for its global portfolio. This includes projects in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the Americas.
Serving as Nokia’s global PMO, JLL will support three key businesses: Nokia Networks, which provides broadband infrastructure, software and services; HERE, its mapping and location intelligence arm; and Nokia Technologies, which develops and licenses innovations.
Nokia’s project portfolio was previously handled by a number of firms, but it has now been consolidated under JLL.
“We chose JLL because we were looking for a partner with the specialised capital planning expertise and technology platform to help us deliver projects in line with our business objectives,” says Geoff Dixon, head of global PMO for Nokia, in a statement. “As we grow our business, we need a solution that goes beyond the fundamentals of PMO. JLL demonstrated that it can add strategic value over and above providing the tools and processes to deliver projects.”
JLL will create a team for Nokia to oversee a number of capital projects across different business units and geographies.
