From a profile in The Globe and Mail of the new CEO:

Research In Motion Ltd.’s new chief executive officer says the company is doing everything right and does not need a change in strategy, and must instead focus on harnessing its talent to improve the BlackBerry and revive sales.

And:

He is immediately setting out to hire a chief marketing officer to help repair the BlackBerry’s dented brand…
