Haute Tech

10/15/2013



Apple announced yesterday that the former CEO of Burberry, Angela Ahrendts, has been hired as a member of Apple's executive team filling the newly designed role role of Senior Vice President with oversight of strategy & operation of Apple's retail stores. Surprisingly, this is not Apple's first hire from the fashion industry; this summer the company brought on Paul Deneve, the former CEO of YSL, to work in special projects.

I always find it interesting when two seemingly unconnected industries collide, but as tech continues to edge into all facets of industry, I suspect we should expect more and more hires of this nature. Angela Ahredt's tenure at Burnerry certainly was successful and she clearly has the vision and creative chops to take Apple to the next level. I'm excited to see what direction she takes in April when she is set to officially take on her new role.
