    I wonder if Thorsten is out due to lack of marketing?

    I also wonder if Frank The CMO will be gone?

    No, thorsten is out because he failed to show that he could turn the ship around.

    Marketing was only a part of his failures.

    TH is out because he couldn't stem BlackBerry's bleeding and the thought that fresh blood may help.

    Though the OP is spot on for mentioning marketing - that really needs to be addressed.

    Something needs to be done to make BlackBerry seem attractive. Crackberry aside: no one cares for BlackBerry - as evinced by the sales figures.

    Change that.

    I don't know how but the insane advertising has to be germain to any discussion re the poor perception BlackBerry projects.

    Maybe this interim ceo will take a huge chunk of that loan and hire some professional ad and media companies.

    i can agree with this post, this was one of the major downfalls of blackberry, the marketing was a bag full of....... u walk down the street and ask what is blackberry ten 4 out of 5 people will look at you as if you speaking alien, i have shown so many of my friends on these other platforms what my z10 can do and its like a kid in the candy store they were amazed and didn't want to let my z10 go, Marketing was a bigggggggg failure and trust me most of these other guys rely heavily on Marketing, can u honestly say u have seen a lot of BB10 marketing?

    Heins was being kicked out because he has no charisma and he has no vision too.

    He has vision. Only lack of action.

    That's the problem.
    Just like dreaming & no intention to wake up and do some act, but shamelessly hope something big to happen..

    Not only TH should go but the head of Marketing should go as well.
