Apple Hires Burberry CEO as Head of Retail ➝

Tim Cook in an internal memo to Apple employees:

She will lead both our retail and online teams. I have wanted one person to lead both of these teams for some time because I believe it will better serve our customers, but I had never met anyone whom I felt confident could lead both until I met Angela. We met for the first time last January, and I knew in that meeting that I wanted her to join Apple. We’ve gotten to know each other over the past several months and I’ve left each conversation even more impressed.

High praise from Tim. I don’t know much about Burberry, but I have a good feeling about her joining Apple.
