Alan Brenner

We have seen quite a number of top level changes happening at RIM recently, from the new CEO Thorsten Heins, to the departure of Jim Balsillie, and we have two more to add to that. RIM has confirmed to Bloomberg that Alan Brenner, RIM's Senior Vice President, and Alistair Mitchell, Vice President of BlackBerry Messenger will be departing from their jobs at RIM. After reporting their recent earnings information, and being open to possible purchasing, it appears as though not everyone at RIM is on board with the plan.

The loss of these two execs opens the door to some fresh blood, some hungry individuals who are on board with RIM's plans to turn things around and regain what they have lost.
