Longtime Apple Senior Director of Worldwide Corporate Communications, Natalie Kerris, has departed the company after 14 years of service. Kerris made the announcement on Twitter, while attaching a quote from Apple co-founder Steve Jobs in her tweet (which looks to be from the walls from Apple’s Cupertino headquarters):
After 14 amazing years at Apple, it's time to move on and see what adventures life holds for me next! pic.twitter.com/9oFp3lGcMB

Kerris started at Apple back in 2001 and worked directly with Steve Jobs and other members of Apple’s executive team. She has yet to update her LinkedIn page to reflect today’s announcement.
Change has been in the works for a while now at the top of Apple’s PR department. Last May, Katie Cotton, Apple’s former VP of public relations retired from the company.
Earlier this month, Apple updated its leadership page to make Steve Dowling the company’s permanent PR chief, after serving as an interim head of the department.
