Börje Ekholm’s reflection on his first day as Ericsson CEO

Today marks an important day in my career as I join Ericsson, a company I have admired for as long as I can remember. Our technology has benefited so many and in so many contexts. 4G was the first network generation that was developed for smartphones and that clearly marked a milestone. Now we are taking the next exciting step when developing 5G, a technology that will also change industries and the very fabric of how we work and operate as societies.
