  • Apple Losing Another Retail Executive


    Apple's retail executives continue to abandon ship at an alarming rate. Late Tuesday, Apple confirmed that retail VP Jerry McDougal has announced his resignation from Apple.

    The departure is, by all means, voluntary and amicable. McDougal says he simply wants to spend more time with his family. Unfortunately for Apple, McDougal had been on a short list of executives to replace John Browett, who exited the position of Apple's retail chief last October.

    Apple spokesman Steve Dowling tells All Things D that Apple's VP of Finance Jim Bean will replace McDougal for the time being.

    “Retail has an incredibly strong network of leaders at the store and regional level, and they will continue the excellent work they’ve done over the past decade to revolutionize retailing with unique, innovative services and a focus on the customer that is second to none," Dowling says. "Jim Bean is moving to Retail to help support our store teams. Jim has been at Apple for 15 years and is a great leader who understands our culture and focus on customer service.”

    Initial reaction to the Bean promotion has been positive.

    John Paczkowski of All Things D says "Bean has exactly the sort of operational acumen that would lend itself to the position McDougal’s departure leaves open."

      In other words he knows Apple is really starting to suck and doesn't want any part of it.

      Why do you think everyone not in America is getting Galaxy devices? They know which is better and doesn't suck.

      No it is because the Galaxy is cheaper then the iPhone. You get what you pay for =D
