Two mobile industry veterans join the BlackBerry board

BlackBerry has appointed two of the mobile industry’s best-known names to its board of directors. They’re Dick Lynch, former Executive Vice President & Chief Technology Officer of Verizon Communications, and Bert Nordberg, the former CEO of Sony Ericsson.

Barbara Stymiest, the chair of BlackBerry’s board, said “We are very pleased to add the talent and industry knowledge of these two respected executives to our Board. We are looking forward to their contributions as we continue to drive for long-term shareholder value and seek opportunities to leverage the extraordinary BlackBerry 10 platform launched last week.”

The company recently appointed singer/songwriter Alicia Keys to the role of ‘Global Creative Director’ at BlackBerry, although this doesn’t appear to be a board position. There are now 12 members of BlackBerry’s board of directors.
