There has been a ton of pressure on RIM and their board to shake things up this past year and it is continuing into 2012. Currently RIM’s Co-CEO’s Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsillie are both chairmen of the RIM board. Shareholders requested to change this up awhile back but instead agreed to an inquiry with a later decision. That decision has a deadline of January 31st so we should be hearing more soon. The current rumor out of the Financial Post is that RIM is planning on announcing a new independent chairman Barbara Stymiest who has been on RIM’s board since 2007. She is one of the seven on the RIM board who have been examining the boards structure and looking at possible changes.
Either way we will probably be hearing soon on what is coming from RIM’s board. From what we have heard so far RIM is intensifying its focus on BB10 but 2012 is a key year for them. What do you think?
