3 Senior Executives Leaving BlackBerry

Almost two weeks after 250 employees were let go from BlackBerry's testing facility in Waterloo, CBC News has confirmed three senior members of the company will also be leaving.

- Doug Kozak, vice-president, Corporate IT Operations

- Carmine Arabia, senior vice-president, Global Manufacturing and Supply Chain

- Graeme Whittington, vice-president, Service Operations

In an email to CBC News, company spokeswoman Rebecca Freiburger wrote "we are in the second phase of our transformation plan where we will be assessing our organization from top to bottom to ensure we have the right people in the right roles with the right skill sets to drive new opportunities in mobile computing."

Two weeks after previous layoffs

BlackBerry announced in late July it had laid off 250 workers from its new-product testing facility, an area that supports research and development.

At that time the company also confirmed David J. Smith, executive vice president of mobile computing, had resigned "for personal reasons." He was in charge of BlackBerry's phased-out PlayBook tablet.

Last year, the company announced plans to cut about 5,000 jobs as part of restructuring efforts.

BlackBerry continues to attempt to regain its footing in the highly competitive smartphone market against technology giants such as Apple and Samsung.

BlackBerry's latest smartphone offering, the Q5, will be available in Canada on August 13.
