BlackBerry EVP of BBM Andrew Bocking leaves the company
BlackBerry has confirmed that executive vice-president of BBM Andrew Bocking has left the company.
The Canadian firm revealed that it was Bocking who made the decision to leave, and president of global enterprise solutions, John Sims, will now head up BlackBerry's BBM operations. The move sees yet another executive leave the company. December saw the exits of executive vice president of global sales, Rick Costanzo, and Chris Wormald, vice president of strategic alliances. A month earlier Kristian Tear and Frank Boulben also parted company.
A BlackBerry spokesperson said: ‘I can confirm that Andrew Bocking, EVP, BBM has made the decision to leave BlackBerry. We thank him for his years of leadership and contribution. The BBM organization remains as a group within BlackBerry and will continue to focus on BlackBerry and BBM strength in messaging and new areas of strength such as mobile marketing, community-building and enterprise messaging. John Sims, President, Global Enterprise Solutions, who has extensive experience in mobile messaging, will add the BBM team to his organization.’
