BlackBerry appoints Ron Louks as its new head of devices business

         

Ever in view that Thorsten Heins stepped down as the CEO of the company, John S. Chen had taken his place for a brief period. Now, the struggling smartphone manufacturer has appointed Ron Louks as its head of devices business.

The veteran will be filling in as the president of devices and emerging solutions, according to a statement from BlackBerry. However, the former technology head of Sony Ericsson has its work cut out to bring the company back on its feet.

Ron Louks has previously worked as the head of strategy for HTC Corp’s American unit before moving on to OpenNMS Group where he served as CEO.

BlackBerry has been losing ground rather quickly and the recent financial reports raise very serious questions about the future of the company. The firm also released its COO, CMO and CFO and just a few days ago, its global creative director, Alicia Keys also left her job with the struggling manufacturer.

Let’s all hope that the new head will help the company to regain its positions and find its way back into the big smartphone game.
