BlackBerry PR is AWOL

by Volker Weber

Last year, the German PR person left to work for his old company again. There was no replacement. BlackBerry is not recruiting, the headcount was scrapped.

BlackBerry had a good agency, which was scrapped the day after the Classic launched. No other agency has come forward to introduce itself. I assume there is none.

This is an upcoming event on BlackBerry's news page. It still lists Thorsten Heins as the CEO:

ZZ56E7CA00

I am getting press releases forwarded from a different country now. If I ask a question, I am getting a reply indicating that the PR person is investigating. That's it.

A few weeks ago I was asked for my shipping address, which is very public. BlackBerry has used it many times before but knowledge about it may have been lost. Nothing has shown up at my door.

I used to know the Executive Director for Europe. The person has since left the company. The position has been scrapped. No way to escalate.

This ship is going down fast.

Very sad to read this, especially that Markus Müllers Job has been scrapped... :-(

I am getting some feedback which indicates that BlackBerry in Germany got the message.

Let’s hope so!

Ceci n'est pas un blog

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
