More BlackBerry (BBRY -1%) execs could be on their own way out: a source tells Bloomberg the company is preparing for a pickup in executive departures as retention bonuses established a year ago expire, and Thorsten Heins sets tougher sales, subscriber growth, and product targets. Moreover, BlackBerry reportedly wants to lower headcount via attrition, given Heins considers the company's ranks too bloated in certain areas. That backs up a recent WSJ report about plans to trim middle management. U.S. sales chief Richard Piasentin was recently fired, and two other execs reportedly left on their own accord.
