RIM Operating Chief Takes Medical Leave
Research In Motion Ltd. said one of its top executives is taking a medical leave from the BlackBerry maker and a retired predecessor is returning as a special adviser, a management shuffle that comes at a sensitive time for the company.
The company said its chief operating officer, Don Morrison, is taking a medical leave and is expected to return later this year. Mr. Morrison, who joined RIM in 2000, oversees the company’s domestic and international operations.
The Canadian company also said Larry Conlee, a former RIM chief operating officer, has returned as a special adviser.
