RIM India MD Frenny Bawa Puts In Papers

Blackberry maker, Research In Motion‘s India MD, Frenny Bawa has resigned, reports Voice and Data. MediaNama has also confirmed the same independently and a press statement from the company is expected.

She was incharge of RIM’s India operations for the last three years. Prior to this she was serving as the company’s Vice- President of Global Business Development, based in Canada, and was responsible for looking after the company’s expansion into International markets, specifically India and the Middle East. She joined RIM in 2005.  Bawa holds a BBA from Simon Fraser University and an MBA from McGill University.

Although RIM’s Blackberry smartphones are facing tough competition in the North American market from Apple’s iOS and Android, it has managed to retain a 15% market share in terms of shipments in the Indian smartphone market, according to IDC.

However, it was a troublesome tenure for Bawa, since the company faced problems in the country, with the Indian government threatening to ban its e-mail and messaging service after it failed to offer a solution for interception. RIM had to finally offer an interception solution, which is being tested by the Indian Government.
