Rob Orr, BlackBerry UK and Ireland's Managing Director is leaving for pastures new. Rob, who took up the new role in only September 2012, has overseen the launch of BlackBerry 10, the Z10 and Q10 in the UK and as far as I can see has done a grand job.

In a statement from BlackBerry:

“Rob Orr has resigned as Managing Director of BlackBerry UK & Ireland with immediate effect. We thank Rob for his contributions and wish him well for the future.”

Why the sudden change of events at BlackBerry UK we don't know and it's quite possible we will never know the real reason but on a personal note I feel it's a real shame that the BlackBerry UK team is changing it's management structure once again as not only was Rob super enthusiastic but also a real nice guy.

All the best Rob from us at CrackBerry
