Three more senior executives have left BlackBerry Ltd. (TSE: BB) as restructuring at the Canadian smart phone maker continues.
BlackBerry, released in Canada last week its new Q5 smart phone which joins the company’s Z10 and Q10 handsets. There are also reports that BlackBerry is poised to roll out another phone, named A10 or Z30, which will run on the BlackBerry OS version 10.2.
In late July, BlackBerry laid off 250 employees working in it product testing facility in Waterloo. Around that time, David J. Smith, executive vice-president of mobile computing, resigned from the company.
Prior to that, the company also confirmed that T.A. McCann, vice-president overseeing BlackBerry’s social networks and Marc Gingras who headed work on the BlackBerry 10 operating system’s calendar and contacts applications, had left the company.
Also that month, Richard Plasentin, United States managing director of BlackBerry, was fired over the lackluster launch of the BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 handsets in the U.S.
All this is on top of the 5,000 BlackBerry workers who were laid off last year as part of the first phase of the restructuring plan.
