BlackBerry's CEO Hires Another Former Colleague To Help Turn Around The Company


BlackBerry Ltd. has named Eric Johnson as its new head of sales. Johnson is a former colleague of BlackBerry's CEO John Chen. Johnson is joining BlackBerry from SAP AG, where he was last a senior vice president in charge of the company's global database and technology. The two worked at SAP after it bought their company Sybase in 2010. Chen is pulling in all his resources to turnaround BlackBerry like he did with Sybase. In a statement Chen said, "The experience that the majority of the new leadership team has in working together previously will drive change within the organization at a faster pace."
