Yesterday we covered a WSJ story that profiled Apple vice president of software engineering, Craig Federighi, known to employees as a methodical decision maker with an easy going personality. He was essentially the star of WWDC 2013 as his on stage presentations of OS X Mavericks and iOS 7 captivated the audience more so than any other executive.
We emailed Federighi to give props to his WWDC 2013 presentation yesterday–and to our surprise–we received a reply from the executive a mere four hours later (he was described in the WSJ as being a prompt email responder):
Thanks for the nice note, Gary! The team did some really great work — it was a pleasure to have the opportunity to finally share it with the world.
As you can see from his reply, Federighi credits his team for their ‘really great’ work and noted he was equally excited to present everything on stage to the world. WWDC 2013 was live streamed around the globe this year on the web, iOS devices and Apple TV.
Back in the fall of 2011, we emailed Tim Cook to congratulate his work as Apple CEO at the time and similarly received a response. The late Steve Jobs, along with other Apple executives are also known to respond to emails from customers. Keep up the amazing work, Mr. Federighi.
