Paul Edwards is the Vice President and General Manager of Enterprise Mobility at Samsung Electronics Canada, where he creates and executes strategies to deliver mobility solutions for Fortune 1000 enterprises and top tier government agencies leveraging Samsung’s industry leading device and software platforms.

Prior to joining Samsung, Paul spent six years as Vice President of Carrier Sales at BlackBerry, supporting the Sprint business unit where he helped Sprint solidify its high ARPU clients and reach third best overall global BlackBerry sales status. After its launch and ramp up period, the account produced $6.6B in sales over a three-year period and reached number one in global sales in 2010.
