Its the only interview I have seen Mike Lazaridis give since he announced stepping down from the co-CEO position and the contents are pretty interesting. He spoke to The Record about his history at RIM but the most interesting thing I found was that Mike said he was planning on stepping down for years. They have been grooming Thorsten Heins for this since he joined RIM. They new Thorston “was a star” but and in the past three years he has proven himself.
Its a very interesting read that gives us some great insight into Mike and his desire to refocus on his family life. Check out the full interview at The Record. We wish you the best of luck Mike!
