by Todd Haselton | June 14, 2012


Research In Motion on Thursday added Timothy Dattels to its board as an independent director. Dattels currently works at TPG Capital LP as a senior partner, Reuters said, and was also head of Goldman Sachs’s Asia investment banking division before retiring in 2003. Dattels will take Antonio Viana-Baptista’s spot on the board; Viana-Baptista had served as Research In Motion’s director since 2009, according to Reuters. Dattels is no stranger to Canada, either. According to his profile on BusinessWeek, he received his undergraduate degree from the University of Western Ontario before heading off to Harvard for his MBA.
