The availability of the BlackBerry Spark Platform for Unified Endpoint Security (UES) and Unified Endpoint Management (UEM), plus the 2019 acquisition of Cylance (now part of the Spark division) has led to changes in responsibilities or title for some of BlackBerry's senior leadership.

David Nicol (pictured), formerly BlackBerry managing director for ANZ and India is now BlackBerry IoT Solutions managing director for Asia Pacific and Japan.

Jason Duerden, previously BlackBerry Cylance ANZ regional director has the new title of BlackBerry Spark managing director for ANZ.

Rob Collins, who used to be BlackBerry Cylance sales engineering director is now BlackBerry Spark technical director for ANZ.

Finally, Joe McPhillips has a slight change of title from BlackBerry Cylance director of channels for Asia Pacific to BlackBerry Spark director of channel sales for Asia Pacific.

The BlackBerry Spark division now covers BlackBerry UEM and BlackBerry Cylance, while BlackBerry IoT Solutions incorporates BlackBerry AtHoc, Secusmart and Radar.
