  • Apple Taps New HR Leader

    On Tuesday, Apple promoted from within and elevated one of its own to the head of its HR department.

    Bloomberg confirmed this morning that Denise Young Smith will now lead human resources for Apple.

    Despite what has appeared in recent years to be Apple's penchant for hiring outside of the company, this time the tech giant has tapped its own retail-savvy internal talent for the top job in HR. Smith is replacing Joel Podolny, whose talents will now be directed toward Apple University.

    Young previously led human resources for Apple’s retail operations, which employed 42,800 of Apple’s 80,300 workers in the latest fiscal year.
    “We are excited that Denise Young Smith will expand her role to lead Apple’s worldwide human resources organization,” a representative for Apple tells Bloomberg. “Apple University is an increasingly important resource within the company as we continue to grow, so Joel Podolny will be focusing full-time on developing and scaling the University he helped establish.”
