Long time readers of CrackBerry will know the name and voice of Craig Johnston. Going back six years to February 2008, it was Craig Johnston who co-hosted CrackBerry Podcast Episode 001 with me. Craig was active on our podcasts for several years and occasionally would drop a post here on the blogs, imparting his immense knowledge of BlackBerry's history to our CrackBerry audience. Remember, Craig has been in the enterprise mobile space since 1999 and was a user of the original pre-BlackBerry device, the RIM 850.
Over his years working in enterprise mobile, Craig has managed BIG mobile device installations —we're talking over 40,000 users — and today is working as Enterprise Mobile Strategist for NTT Data. When he's not doing that, he's likely working on writing mobile device-related books, of which he's written 13 to date, or playing with wearable tech, his new addiction (he's also a Google Glass Explorer).
With BlackBerry's new leadership team making it clear that enterprise will again play a big part of the BlackBerry story moving forward, I wanted to make sure we're staffed up to cover the pertinent topics around this area accurately and with authority. Craig was more then happy to oblige to my call. Expect to see a couple of stories from him each week. And once he's in the groove on CrackBerry, you'll likely see contributions from him pop up on our other Mobile Nations sites.
On that note, please join me in welcoming Craig Johnston back to the team!! Between his stories here, you can follow him on twitter and instagram at @ibanyan. And for nostalgia's sake, I recommend you go listen to CrackBerry Podcast Episode 001 again. Lol. It's... **too** funny.
