Apple has today updated its official PR Bios website to include key Vice Presidents, expanding its Executive Leadership Team, 9to5Mac is reporting. Apple’s team of executives now includes Vice President of Special Projects Paul Deneve, Vice President of Environmental Initiatives Lisa Jackson, Vice President and Dean of Apple University Joel Podolny, Vice President of Hardware Technologies Johny Srouji, and Vice President of Worldwide Human Resources Denise Young Smith.
It must be noted that each of the newly listed positions have been recently added to Apple. For instance, Deneve joined Apple from Yves Saint Laurent last year, Lisa Jackson came from EPA, Joel Podolny joined Apple University earlier this year and Young Smith was promoted to head of HR earlier this year as well. While, all these Apple Vice Presidents have been reporting to CEO Tim Cook for past many months, Apple has now finally decided to publicly highlight these key members.
“Adding these five important executives to the website also adds two more women as Apple moves to diversify its executive branch. Apple’s PR Bios page previously only included one woman Apple employees (Senior VP of Retail Angela Ahrendts) and two female board members (Andrea Jung and Susan Wagner).”
