Sunil Dutt, BlackBerry’s India Managing Director just recently oversaw the release of the BlackBerry Z10 in the region. However, that hasn’t stopped him from resigning.
What’s interesting is the timing. It was just recently revealed that the BlackBerry Z10 sold out within two days in India. This was quite a feat considering the Z10 has been priced as a high-end device.
“I can confirm Sunil Dutt has left his position as Managing Director, BlackBerry India with immediate effect. We wish Sunil well for the future. In the interim, Rick Costanzo, Executive Vice President for Global Sales, will take over the leadership of the talented management team in India as we start the search for a new Sales lead as soon as possible. India is an extremely important market for BlackBerry and our aim is to continue to build on our recent momentum with the launch of BlackBerry 10,” said a BlackBerry India spokesperson.
