Apple 宣布管理層改組,iOS 軟體資深副總將離職,改由 Mac 軟體工程資深副總接手

日前 Apple 透過新聞稿宣布其管理階層將進行改組,這可說是 Apple 近年來最大一次的人事異動。Apple 強調此舉將會激勵公司內的硬體、軟體與服務等團隊更加能互相合作。新聞稿中表示,iOS 軟體資深副總福斯特爾(Scott Forstall)將於明年離開 Apple,在這段過度期將會轉任執行長庫克 (Tim Cook)的顧問。而零售部門資深副總布洛威特(John Browett)也將離開 Apple,目前零售部門將直將向執行長庫克匯報業務狀況。

iOS 軟體資深副總福斯特爾被喻為是 iOS 之父,這幾年 iOS 裝置的成功他可說是功不可沒。他隨者 Apple 創辦人賈伯斯(Steve Jobs)從 Next 電腦進入了 Apple,並且負責 Mac OS X 與其 Aqua 介面工程。稍後,他被任命負責開發 iPhone OS。近年來隨者 iOS 的成功,他也成為了 Apple 發表會的常客之一。

零售部門資深副總布洛威特曾經擔任英國著名電子零售商的執行長,他在去年接替離職的詹森(Ron Johnson)成為 Apple 零售部門的負責人。他在 Apple 任職未滿一年。

Apple 臺灣網站尚未更新此人事消息,不過美國網站已經更新了這項資訊。目前 Apple 官方網站已經無法在看到這兩人的介紹,而費德里吉的職稱從原本的Mac 軟體工程資深副總更改為軟體工程副總,或許這表示 Apple 將要準備投入更多的資源來整合 OS X 與 iOS。
