Remember that Security Innovation Center in the Washington, D.C. Area that BlackBerry CEO John Chen began setting up? Well, we've not really heard a lot of news who exactly is running the show there but it seems BlackBerry has made at least one employee acquisition to help in that area that went relatively unnoticed, until today.
Showing up on the Washington Business Journal's People on the move list is Jeffrey Ait, who has now taken on position at as VP and Head of US Public Sector Sales after having spent two years at Good Technology as Director Public Sector Americas.
Doing a bit of digging around, it looks as though Ait actually joined BlackBerry approximately three months ago according to his LinkedIn profile and most recently, he headed up the post over the BlackBerry Blogs that covered BlackBerry's Secure Work Space apps getting U.S. Department of Defense approval.
As we all know, John Chen has been hiring very specific people to take up positions at BlackBerry and with the restructuring done is looking to hire more but in this case, it seems Good wasn't good enough to keep Jeffrey Ait there.
