BlackBerry Executives shuffled, as company continues reorganization
BlackBerry, the company now has a new CEO after not deal was finalized, and which reportedly plans to use quad-core chips and 1080p screens in the future, is continuously undergoing changes, as part of its reorganization. According to a recent press release, a couple of executives are leaving the company.
Abandoning ship are Kristian Tear, Chief Operating Officer, and Frank Boulben, Chief Marketing Officer. Furthermore, the Chief Financial Officer position will be fulfilled by James Yersh, who will replace the current CFO, Brian Bidulka, who will serve as “a special advisor to the CEO for the remainder of the fiscal year to assist with the transition”. In addition to these changes, a Board member since 2007, Roger Martin, has resigned.
John Chen, Executive Chair and CEO, thinks that “BlackBerry has a strong cash position and continues, by a significant margin, to be the top provider of trusted and secure mobile device management solutions to enterprise customers around the world. Building on this core strength, and in conjunction with these management changes, I will continue to align my senior management team and organizational structure, and refine the Company’s strategy to ensure we deliver the best devices, mobile security and device management through BES 10, provide multi-platform messaging solutions with BBM, and expand adoption of QNX embedded systems.”
