He is responsible for consolidating the telecom industry by various acquisitions including Motorola, Panasonic , Alcatel Lucent and Siemens.
On 23 November 2011, Suri announced that the company planned to eliminate 17,000 jobs by the end of 2013 to enable NSN to refocus on mobile broadband equipment, the fastest-growing segment of the market. The reductions would slash the company's work force by 23 percent from 74,000. The cuts followed NSN's $1.2 billion purchase of Motorola's mobile network equipment business in July 2010, which added staff; and would help the company trim annual operating expenses by $1.35 billion by the end of 2013.
On 29 April 2014, Suri was appointed as the CEO of Nokia. This was after Nokia had bought back full control of NSN and sold Nokia's phone division to Microsoft Mobile. Suri was the second non-Finnish CEO of Nokia after Stephen Elop.
On 2 March 2020, Nokia announced that Suri will step down as CEO of Nokia. He will be replaced by Pekka Lundmark, starting 1 August 2020.
