One of the most recognizable faces within BlackBerry India has promptly decided to depart the Canadian smartphone company. According to industry sources, Varghese M. Thomas (Director - Corporate Communications - India & Greater China) has left BlackBerry India.
This isn't the first major shakeup of top brass at BlackBerry India, as Sunil Lalvani (Managing Director) left just over two months ago to become Vice President of Qualcomm and President of Qualcomm India. In the interim, Matthew Tonkin (VP, Carrier Sales and Distribution, APAC) is leading operations in India.
Details are few & fair between for these departures (their LinkedIn profiles still show BlackBerry), but it certainly isn't positive to see many important figures for BlackBerry leaving the Indian market.
