The Wall Street Journal

is reporting that Research In Motion’s chief marketing officer (CMO), Keith Pardy, will be leaving the company. Citing personal reasons, Pardy will transition out of the company over the next six months. RIM is in the midst of launching its new, highly anticipated BlackBerry PlayBook tablet and the timing is, to say the least, unfortunate. The WSJ notes that the CMO revealed his plans to the Waterloo-based company last month.
