Today Canadian Business named BlackBerry CEO John Chen as one of the most powerful business people of 2016.

Mr. Chen came on board during a dire time and immediately made changes to turn around the former smartphone giant. Changes including defining key business strategies, restructuring, downsizing, strategically buying out various companies, and hiring top management talent.

The following quote from Mr. Chen sums up his management style-

We could keep the pride and then die hungry, or we can eat well and be not so proud. I chose to eat well.”
