BlackBerry is pulling in key people to further CEO John Chen’s vision for the company. One such recent hire was Jeffrey Ait, who spent two years at Good Technology as Director Public Sector Americas.
Mr. Ait has joined BlackBerry as their VP and Head of US Public Sector Sales. BlackBerry apparently made the hire over three months ago, with Mr. Ait recently blogging about BlackBerry’s Secure Work Space apps getting U.S. Department of Defense approval on Inside BlackBerry’s Business blog.
It will be interesting to see how well Mr. Ait performs his duties with BlackBerry. Perhaps he can continue pushing BlackBerry’s enterprise solutions above his old employer.
