RIM CEOs Jim Balsillie & Mike Lazaridis Step Down

Research In Motion (RIM) has finally made a monumental change in the leadership of their company with co-CEOs Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsillie both stepping down from their positions. The position of CEO will now be filled by existing RIM Chief Operating Officer (COO), Thorsten Heins. We have to say that RIM does not fall short when it comes to CEOs with unique names. This move comes not long after both Lazaridis and Balsillie gave up their roles as co-Chairs of the RIM Board of Directors in favor of a singular replacement. We had a feeling with their chairman of the board roles given up that both men would one day be replaced as co-CEOs, but we had no idea it would be this soon. RIM has navigated a tumultuous 2011 and is not looking that good for 2012 as of yet, but this shakeup may impress investors, analysts, and the media.
