Angela Ahrendts to Join Apple as SVP of Retail and Online Stores

Apple PR:

Apple today announced that Angela Ahrendts, CEO of Burberry, will be joining Apple in a newly created position, as a senior vice president and member of our executive team, reporting to CEO Tim Cook.

Seems like an apt hire for the role, unlike John “Footnote” Browett.

This hire also goes to show how coveted it is to work at Apple. Browett and Ahrendts both joined the company in SVP positions after being CEOs of their former companies, and July hire Paul Deneve was a former CEO of Yves Saint Laurent.
