Lev13than (581686) writes "After a brutal year, in which Research in Motion lost three quarters of its market value, botched the launch of its PlayBook tablet and watched rivals eat into its market share for smartphones, company builders Jim Balsillie and Mike Lazaridis are relinquishing their positions as executives and co-chairmen of the board of directors. The new chief executive of RIM will be Thorsten Heins – a man they recruited five years ago who came to be a trusted advisor and their hand-picked successor."
