Two More Senior Executives Abandon RIM

Posted by Knowlton Thomas

Two more executives have fled the sinking ship that is Research In Motion, the Wall Street Journal Reports. Alan Brenner, a senior vice president for BlackBerry, and Alistair Mitchell, a vice president for BlackBerry Messenger, have both decided to depart the Waterloo tech company.

It was only last week that RIM lost David Yach, CTO of Software, and Jim Rowan, COO of global operations—two of the company's most senior executives. And Jim Balsillie, a 20-year veteran and former co-CEO of RIM, also cut ties with the beleaguered company.

A RIM spokeswoman confirmed with the WSJ that Alistair is "no longer with RIM," while Alan will "leave the company following a transition period." Other key executives lost in the past year include Brian Wallace, a marketing exec; Jim Tobin, a senior vice-president of software; and Frenny Bawa, managing director of RIM's Indian unit, among others.

It seems that more and more senior executives are losing confidence in RIM.
