"This is to confirm that Frenny Bawa, RIM's managing director for India, is leaving RIM in order to pursue other interests. We appreciate Frenny's past contributions to RIM's growth and we wish her all the best," the company's spokesperson said.
The development comes close on heels of BlackBerry drawing flak from scores of subscribers over a recent three day blackout of services worldwide including in India.
The company, however, denied any relation between the two events. "We will keep you posted on Frenny's replacement in due course of time," the statement added.
Meanwhile, Urpo Karjalainen, Senior Vice President - Greater China, India & ANZ, will oversee the business operations for India.
