Angela Ahrendts to leave Apple in April, replaced by Deirdre O’Brien
Apple today announced that Deirdre O’Brien is taking on new responsibilities for Apple’s retail and online stores in an expanded role as senior vice president of Retail + People, reporting to CEO Tim Cook. After five transformative years leading the company’s retail and online stores, Angela Ahrendts plans to depart Apple in April for new personal and professional pursuits.
End of an era. I just hope she doesn’t decide to revamp a department store.
