BlackBerry UK and Ireland managing director Rob Orr has quit with immediate effect

The manufacturer said in a statement: “Rob Orr has resigned as managing director of BlackBerry UK and Ireland with immediate effect. We thank Rob for his contributions and wish him well for the future.”

Orr (pictured) took over the running of the business in August and replaced Stephen Bates, who became the regional MD for Europe in a newly created role.

He spent seven years at BlackBerry, first joining in June 2006 as director of carrier product management. Three years later he became vice president of EMEA.

Orr oversaw the manufacturer’s launch of the BlackBerry 10 operating system in January. Since then, two handsets have been released on the platform – the full touchscreen Z10 and QWERTY-based Q10.
