Blackberry India's Managing Director Resigns


The Canadian phone manufacturer, Blackberry, has suffered from a setback, as it’s Indian management head has left the organization.

The Canadian phone manufacturer, BlackBerry, has suffered from a setback, as its Indian management head has left the organization. BlackBerry news reported that the company’s managing director, Sunil Lalvani, has quit. It is revealed that he would soon join ‘greener pastures’.

Director Corporate Communications and Social Media for BlackBerry, Varghese Thomas, has confirmed that Mr. Sunil has stopped working and the company is thankful for his services.

BlackBerry news today informed that Matthew Tonkin would soon replace Sunil as an interim head of the company’s operations in the second most populated country. The organization would later appoint a permanent head soon. Market sources have further informed that the managing director could not be accessed for discussing the new development.

Sunil has specialized in the high-tech fields of business technology and enterprise, and maintained good relations with leaders of business organizations, as stated by BlackBerry breaking news. Since 2009, he has been serving the interests of the North American organization.

The ex-employee has worked for a number of other companies as well, including Nokia Corporation, Cisco, Global Telesystems, and SITA-Equant. He was one of those officials who had successfully comprehended the phone market of the South Asian country.

In a press conference held a few weeks ago, the company’s former MD stated that the business was successfully maximizing revenues from the sales of softwares. He added that its BES 12 had lured enterprises. Industry experts believe that the resignation of the senior official, who worked in the organization, would create management problems for BlackBerry.

The departure of Mr. Sunil is not the only shocking news for the phonemaker, as it has recently suffered from the failure of its Storm smartphone. Its new modern product has failed due to its inability to compete with the hardware and software updates of the Apple’s iphone. It is expected that Sunil’s decision would influence the motivation levels of the manufacturer’s workforce in the Indian territory.

Mr. Tonkin should now take significant steps to manage the device manufacturer’s operations in the South Asian country. The company is known for its reputation and credibility in the market, with a potential to compete among the corporate behemoths.

The corporate giant should now carefully appoint a permanent official for heading its Indian division; otherwise, it might suffer from a loss of Indian enterprise market share. It is probable that the company would soon announce the name of its new head of Indian operations.
