Dutt, who joins RIM from Hewlett-Packard Co.'s Indian unit, has also worked with Samsung Electronics and Nokia and is a 27-year veteran of the Indian mobile technology and telecoms sector, RIM said in a statement.

RIM, which has parted ways with a string of high-profile employees in recent months, said in November that its former MD, Frenny Bawa, had left the company to pursue other interests.
