BlackBerry board member exits

BlackBerry Ltd.’s board of directors is set to get smaller as one independent member with industry experience exits.

Former Sony Ericsson CEO Bert Nordberg will not stand for re-election as a board member, according to a company filing.

BlackBerry stated that the board would shrink to six members, with the intention to add more experienced leaders in the coming year. “During the current fiscal year, the board intends to increase its membership by two qualified directors, taking into consideration the board’s composition, experience and activity level,” the document states.
