    Oh wow.

    I have always held that I don't think FB was specifically the problem. Hope it works out well for all parties.

    Frank had to go, sorry to say it.

    The superbowl commercial was a disaster of epic proportions. And all their marketing after that was pathetic.

    I hope they get some new talent in these positions.

    A truly waste of money. It was like they were burning dollar bills, piles and piles! Effective marketing. Take care of your niche and bring more people to that niche.

    Of course not. But chain of command means his is the biggest head to get axed if the ceo feels that marketing was a shaft work. Hopefully the other parties lower down in management related to the disasters were held accountable too....

    Probably the best bit of BBRY news in a while. Marketing was horrendous.

    Are you out of your mind? Frank Boulben, BlackBerry Chief Marketing Officer, was one of the critical failures illuminated by the BlackBerry 10 abortion, I mean launch, in February 2013. He should have been the first employee that Thorsten Heins, former BlackBerry Chief Executive Officer, should have terminated. But I surmise Thorsten was too busy conspiring with Prem Watsa, Fairfax Financial Holdings, in a take-over coup d'etat.

    I don't believe that failed marketing was is/was the biggest issue BB10 faces/faced. Not by a long shot.
