BlackBerry Confirms Three More Execs Leaving the Company


BlackBerry has confirmed multiple times that they are collapsing the management layers as they transform the company. That continues with three more execs confirmed leaving with BlackBerry telling 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.” I have heard a similar message from BlackBerry employees where there are just too many managers for each employee. Here are the latest to be downsized:

  • Doug Kozak, vice-president, corporate information technology operations.
  • Carmine Arabia, senior vice-president, global manufacturing and supply chain.
  • Graeme Whittington, vice-president, service operations

Hopefully all of this restructuring allowing BlackBerry to be more agile and step on the gas for product releases.

  1. Trimming the fat, nothing more.
    This has to be done, though I am sure many will manipulate this news into a negative.
    You know those people that expected BlackBerry 10 to dominate the market in 2 months lol, give them several quarters, and yes they will.

  2. I still don’t see enough ads on Hulu or around the city here in Houston.

  3. Is this a Magna company run by Stronach? It sure is starting to look like one given the turnstile in the executive offices?

  4. This can happen in any large company that operates in good times. Jobs added on many layers. Then when the leaner times come, as now with BlackBerry, those sometimes redundant jobs get lost. I really think that is what’s happening here.
