The Most Significant IT Executive Moves Of 2012 (So Far)


RIM CEO Changes

Will 2012 be remembered as the year RIM entered its death spiral or the year when it turned things around? Given the company's string of missteps, it seems increasingly like the former, but it does have new management in place in attempt to right things. In January, in what's still been the most significant IT executive move of the year thus far, RIM named Thorsten Heins, its former co-COO, to the top spot, replacing co-CEOs Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsillie (left and right, respectively).
