Last week during RIM’s Q4 Earnings Call we saw the announcement of more high-level executives departing from Research in Motion. Today, this trend is continuing with more confirmations of executives leaving. This time we have two executive departures to report on. The first is Alan Brenner, Senior Vice President of the BlackBerry Platform. He officially leaves his post this week as his transition period ends. The second departure is Alistair Mitchell, Vice President of BlackBerry Instant Messaging Service.
These departures are being heralded by the Mass Media as a bad thing; however, I think they could actually be great new for RIM. The company is obviously struggling and they didn’t fall into this predicament overnight. Getting rid of all the people who contributed to RIM’s massive decline can, in my eyes, only mean good things for the future. RIM is now free to bring in young, forward-thinking executives who can help make BlackBerry 10 something that can and will compete with iOS and Android. We’ll get a good preview of RIM’s future in a few weeks at BlackBerry World 2012.
