RIM can’t seem to catch a break as another high-level executive from the smartphones manufacturer has left.
According to a report from Bloomberg, Patrick Spence, RIM executive vice president of global sales, has resigned from the company.
Spence will be taking a new leadership role in another industry, a spokesperson from RIM has said. However, no details as to what company or what industry Spence is going to have been revealed.
The resignation of the RIM executive vice president follows a long succession of departures by members of the RIM senior management.
Just last month, two senior executives left RIM. These were RIM VP for BlackBerry Messenger platform Alistair Mitchell and RIM Senior VP for the BlackBerry platform Alan Brenner.
In January, RIM cofounders Jim Balsillie and Mike Lazaridis stepped down from their post as co-CEOs.
Balsillie and Lazaridis were replaced by Thorsten Heins who joined the maker of the BlackBerry in 2007 coming from Siemens AG.
Chief Operating Officer Jim Rowan and Chief Technology Officer David Yach has also recently left RIM.
