    BlackBerry BBM shakeup as EVP gone from company | BGR

    Attachment 246620

    BGR has learned from multiple sources that Executive Vice President Andrew Bocking is no longer with the company. What is unconfirmed, however, is whether Bocking was fired or decided to leave on his own accord. One source of ours tells us he was let go and that BlackBerry is rolling up the BBM group into the enterprise unit and that Andrew was displeased with BlackBerry as whole, replacing his personal phone with an Android phone instead of using one of BlackBerry?s products. Another source of ours, however, firmly denies Andrew was fired and that him leaving is ?a big loss? for the BBM division and he was poached by a competitor. Either way, this doesn?t bode too well for one of BlackBerry?s only remaining products that?s still of interest. We reached out to BlackBerry and they provided the following statement to BGR:

    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.
