Adam Mirabella is Nokia’s Global Director of Digital Marketing. He manages Social Network Marketing, Digital Marketing, and key relationships with powerhouses such as Facebook, Twitter, Google and Foursquare. His mission? Leveraging Nokia’s digital marketing worldwide to deliver a crisp, relevant message for the people Nokia serves.

Nokia‘s focus? Helping people connect. Whether through devices, services, social networks, or new products, Nokia is always on the lookout for tools to make connection easier. And with Adam’s friendly nature, it’s no wonder he’s helped them achieve success.

Before claiming his current title, Adam directed Nokia’s Ovi Music Services. Commanding worldwide music retail sales and operations (including Ovi Music Unlimited, also known as Comes With Music) was no easy task, yet Adam did so with grace and dexterity. Thanks to his efforts, unlimited music download service is now available in over thirty markets, and digital music stores can be found worldwide.

A member of Nokia’s global music management team, Adam’s love of music has become a unifying force throughout his career. Collecting top-ranking positions in places like Sony Music, Atlantic Records, and the National Association of Recording Merchandisers, we naturally wanted to learn more about the Advisory Board member who truly rocks.
