Managing Director of BlackBerry Malaysia, Annamalai Muthu has resigned from his position. This comes after several weeks of uncertainty for the company. Last month, it was announced that some 4,500 positions would be cut; news that came on the heels of a US$1 billion quarterly loss.
We’ve reached out to BlackBerry Malaysia, and here’s the official statement:
“I can confirm that Annamalai Muthu has decided to leave his position at BlackBerry. We thank him for his contribution to building BlackBerry’s business here in Malaysia and wish him well for the future. Ben Quirin has assumed the role of Managing Director for Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam. Ben recently moved with his family to Malaysia, following seven years of service with the BlackBerry Middle East & Africa team. Ben successfully grew the brand presence and sales channels in several emerging markets in Africa, making him an ideal candidate to lead our business in Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam.”
