Apple has revised its senior management teams, introducing five vice presidents. The team includes Paul Deneve (ex-YSL) who leads special projects, Linda Jackson (environmental initiatives), Joel Podolny, Dean of the Apple University, Johny Srouji, hardware technologies, and Denise Young Smith, human resources.
AdAge claims Apple also hired Gap’s Global Marketing Director Marcela Aguilar, who will occupy the same role at Apple. “Her experience in simply communicating the value of meaningful design and developing ideas that create an emotion – rather than just communicate a product benefit – should serve her well at Apple,” said Gap’s Marketing Chief, Seth Farbman.
