Luca Filigheddu quitting BlackBerry

Luca Filigheddu, Manager, Global Developer Ecosystem at BlackBerry, is another high profile employee who is leaving the company.

Luca has managed the developer ecosystem and developer communities globally for BlackBerry, which also encompassed the BlackBerry Developer Group program and BlackBerry Developer Elites.

Luca joined BlackBerry in July 2012 as a BlackBerry Developer Evangelist before being quickly promoted to the Head of Developer Evangelism EMEA in August 2013.

In March of 2014, he became Manager, Global Developer Ecosystem, where he worked with developers to align their activities and mobile development efforts to the focus and goals of the company worldwide.

At the time of writing, there is no word on where he is moving to and no decision has been taken as to who will replace him.

We have reached out to BlackBerry and will update this article with any reply we receive.

Luca has been a great source of support for many BlackBerry developers and I wish him well wherever he moves onto.
