RIM May Act On Calls for Leadership Change

Posted by at 1:28 pm on January 3, 2012

The independent panel investigating possible management shakeups at RIM may push co-CEOs Jim Balsillie and Mike Lazardis out from their joint positions as chairmen of the board, contacts slipped out early on Tuesday. The terms, characterized by the Financial Post as already set, would most likely see independent director Barbara Stymiest take over in the position from the BlackBerry maker’s co-founders.

A final decision hadn’t been locked down, but Stymiest would be the frontrunner. It’s not known if Balsillie or Lazaridis would stay on the board, although it’s unlikely they would exit the board altogether.

RIM declined to comment. The panel presents its findings on January 31 and will give 30 days for management to respond.
