Former BlackBerry CIO Robin Bienfait to handle innovations at Samsung Communications USA?
In an interesting turn of events, it appears BlackBerry's former CIO (Chief Information Officer), Robin Bienfait, will be coming out of her one-year retirement to get the title of Chief Technology Innovations Officer at Samsung Communications America. This information is yet to be officially confirmed.
Mrs. Bienfait retired from her position at BlackBerry in December 2012, after serving the Canadian company for five years. Given her previous expertise and eventual position at Samsung, it is likely she will be involved with the Korean firm's KNOX security enterprise technology.
Prior to joining BlackBerry, Robin Bienfait held senior leadership positions within AT&T Labs and Global Network Services. She graduated the Georgia Institute of Technology with a Master's degree in Management of Technology. She also holds a Bachelor's degree in engineering from Central Missouri State University, and an Associate in business degree from Maryland University.
