Apple VP of Special Projects Paul Deneve Will Now Report to Jeff Williams Instead of Tim Cook


Yesterday, Apple VP of Special Products Paul Deneve was removed from the company’s executive profiles page. This suggested that he may longer be with the company or that he has left the executive team.

Financial Times reporter Tim Bradshaw then reported that Deneve is still at the company. Deneve will now report to Apple Watch lead Jeff Williams instead of CEO Tim Cook. Bradshaw confirmed this in a tweet:


Paul Deneve joined Apple after leaving his position as CEO of  luxury fashion house Yves Saint Laurent. One of Deneve’s first roles after he joined the company on the Apple Watch. Now that Deneve is reported directly to Williams, we could see his involvement with the company shift to primarily focus on the Apple Watch.
