Marty Beard will be responsible for marketing, application development, quality and customer care.

BlackBerry named Marty Beard as its COO yesterday, filling a position that has been vacant since November following a management reshuffle.

Beard was most recently CEO of LiveOps, a provider of cloud applications for customer service. Prior to that, he was an executive of Sybase, an enterprise software maker that was formerly run by current BlackBerry CEO John Chen.

BlackBerry said Beard in his new role would be responsible for marketing, application development, quality and customer care, among other things.

Former BlackBerry COO Kristian Tear left the company late last year, shortly after Chen took the reins.
