BlackBerry Hires New Sales Exec
CBJ – BlackBerry has named Cisco Systems executive Carl Wiese as its new global head of sales, replacing John Sims. The hiring comes as the Waterloo-based company looks to increase its marketshare as part of its turnaround under CEO John Chen.
It’s not known whether Sims was let go, or resigned voluntarily. He had been with BlackBerry for about 18 months.
BlackBerry said Wiese will be responsible for driving its “go-to-market strategy and advancing the company’s global sales efforts to drive growth.”
