Canada-based smartphone maker BlackBerry, formerly Research In Motion (RIM), on Thursday announced the appointment of Sunil Lalvani as the Managing Director for India.

Mr. Lalvani, who used to head BlackBerry’s enterprise business in the country, will replace Sunil Dutt, who left the company in March.

Over the past two months, Rick Costanzo, the company’s executive vice-president for global sales, was leading the team in India.

Mr. Lalvani said, “BlackBerry is driving the adoption of its next generation of mobile computing platform with BlackBerry 10, and India is a key market for growth of the powerful platform. As I take up this new role, our focus will be to drive differentiated solutions for consumers and enterprise customers in India, providing a unique mobility experience that harnesses the full range of the BlackBerry offering.”

He has been with the company since 2009 and in the new role will be responsible for overseeing and driving the overall business strategy and growth for BlackBerry in India.
