Three more BlackBerry executives depart the company

Waterloo-based BlackBerry has successfully launched a new ‘mobile computing platform’ and a number of new smartphones. In Canada, we’re lucky enough to have all the BlackBerry 10 devices available to us: Z10, Q10 and the upcoming Q5. In addition, BlackBerry World, their app store, has over 120,000 apps.

Behind the scenes it’s a different story. BlackBerry has been in transition for well over a year with a goal to save the company $1 billion. Apart from the 5,000 employees that were laid off last year, we recently saw 250 employees receive notice, plus today it’s been revealed that three more execs are departing the company:

– Doug Kozak, vice-president, Corporate IT Operations
– Carmine Arabia, senior vice-president, Global Manufacturing and Supply Chain
– Graeme Whittington, vice-president, Service Operations

According to the CBC, Rebecca Freiburger, BlackBerry spokesperson, stated that “we are in the second phase of our transformation plan where we will be assessing our organization – from top to bottom – to ensure we have the right people in the right roles with the right skill sets to drive new opportunities in mobile computing.”
