Apple is poaching members of RIM's enterprise sales team, according to WSJ report.

In the past 18 months, at least five members of RIM's enterprise-sales team have left the company to join Apple. This includes Geoff Perfect, who served as Head of Strategic Sales at RIM for nearly five years before leaving in April 2009 and joining Apple a month later as Head of Enterprise iPhone Sales, according to LinkedIn, the online networking service for professionals.

In January, Joe Bartlett, Steve Marshall and Peter Decker all left RIM after working there for about four years, according to LinkedIn. Bartlett and Marshall joined Apple a month later, while Decker joined them in February. Decker was a Global Account Manager at RIM, Bartlett was a Senior Global Sales Manager and Marshall was a Global Strategic Account Manager, according to Linkedin.
