BlackBerry maker RIM trouble seems not to be ending pretty soon anytime – the company recently experiences a stock closed at $11.09 and eight year low and now the company sees losing its head of sales. Patrick Spence was with the company since 1998 and now after 14 years of company loyalty, the company’s London-based head of global sales is moving on, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Regarding Spence’s departure, a company spokesperson told the Wall Street Journal:

I can confirm that Patrick Spence, Head of Global Sales for Research In Motion, has resigned following 14 years of service. Patrick will be taking on a leadership position in a different industry. The sales function will report directly into Kristian Tear, our newly appointed COO when he starts this summer. In the interim, the sales function will report to [CEO] Thorsten Heins.
