Research in Motion’s former Co-CEO, Jim Balsillie has resigned as a Board of Directors. Several other key execs have left the company.
During the Q4 2012 financial earnings rolls out, the announcement of the recent changes in the organizations was made by RIM’s new President and CEO, Thorsten Heins.
If we go by the news, we expect David Yach to retire from his role as CTO, Software along with Jim Rowan, COO Global Operations.
With the farewell speech from Jim Balsille, Thorstein Heins extended thanks to David Yach and Jim Rowan for their contributions to RIM and went back to work for the search to hire COO to run the company’s operations single handedly.
A sturdy team at exec level can transform a company, while a badly chosen one can drown one. Makes me think of Lucent….!!!
