Apple stelt Dixon’s John Browett aan als opvolger Ron Johnson

Vorig jaar meldden we dat de Senior Vice President of Retail Ron Johnson, vertrok naar JCPenney. Vandaag meldt Apple dat er een opvolger is gevonden in de vorm van de Europeaan John Browett.

Browett verruilt zijn huidge baan als CEO van Dixons in Engeland voor de prestigieuze baan als Senior Vice President of Retail bij Apple. Browett wordt daarmee verantwoordelijk voor de retailwinkels van Apple. Gezien de ambitieuze uitbreidingsplannen van Apple een uitdagende baan!

Dit alles komt uit Apple’s persbericht:

CUPERTINO, California—January 30, 2012—Apple® today announced that John Browett will join the company as senior vice president of Retail, reporting to Apple CEO Tim Cook.
