Miles Flint has stepped down as president of Sony Ericsson, the mobile phone manufacturer announced yesterday.

Flint, who became president of Sony Ericsson in 2004, is credited with helping increase profitability of the company, which was formed out of the joint venture of Telefon Ericsson and Sony Corporation in 2001.

"After nearly 17 years in Sony and Sony Ericsson, I wish to develop new personal and business opportunities and intend to take a short career break before deciding on my next steps," Flint said.

Hideki ‘Dick' Komiyama, currently chairman of the board of Sony Electronics, and EVP Electronics Marketing and Sales Strategies of Sony Corp, will succeed him as president.

Flint will remain as executive advisor to Komiyama until the end of the year.
