TORONTO—Two more BlackBerry executives are headed for the door under sweeping changes from its new leader.

The Waterloo, Ont.-based firm says Rick Costanzo, executive vice-president of global sales, and Chris Wormald, vice-president of strategic alliances, will leave their roles.

The departures come as interim chief executive John Chen pushes ahead with plans to reshape the money-losing Canadian technology company.

Costanzo was responsible for overseeing the team responsible for the international presence of the BlackBerry smartphone, while Wormald oversaw licensing and acquisitions.


Both executives held various other positions at the company over the years.

BlackBerry will report its third-quarter financial results Dec. 20.
