Head of Mac OS X software, Bertrand Serlet is leaving Apple

Apple has announced that Bertrand Sertlet, Vice President of Mac Software Engineering, is leaving to pursue scientific interests.

“I’ve worked with Steve for 22 years and have had an incredible time developing products at both NeXT and Apple, but at this point, I want to focus less on products and more on science,” said Bertrand Serlet, Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering. “Craig has done a great job managing the Mac OS team for the past two years, Lion is a great release and the transition should be seamless.”

He'll be replaced by Craig Federighi, current VP of Mac Software Engineering. While this represents a change to the Mac group and not the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad group run by SVP of iOS Software Engineering, Scott Forstall, Apple has a history of bringing technology from Mac OS X to iOS X and vice versa. Also, since iOS and Cocoa Touch are based on Mac OS X and Cocoa, and Serlet played a pivotal roll in in the development of both, his contributions even to Apple's mobile efforts have no doubt been immense.

Everyone at TiPb wishes Serlet a successful future! Video memories after the break!
