The Wall Stree Journal just reported that RIM’s executive vice president of global sales, Patrick Spence, has resigned.
According to a statement issued by company representatives, Spence will be “taking a leadership position in a different industry,” though no further insight was provided.
In the interim, RIM’s CEO Thorsten Heins will absorb the role’s responsibilities and pass them on to the company’s new COO, Kristian Tear, when he starts later this year.
Earlier this month Heins revealed his plans to revitalize the company… whereupon RIM’s stock dove to hit an eight-year low.
Investors, it seemed, were not impressed.
