Apple CEO Tim Cook has opened up to the rest of the company about the hiring of Angela Ahrendts, Apple's new Senior Vice President of Retail. In a company-wide memo this morning, Cook outlined how Ahrendts was hired, and how confident he is in Ahrendts' ability to lead both the physical and online retail teams. The memo also discussed why Ahrendts fits so well with Apple's culture, according to 9to5Mac
Cook also thanked Apple's retail team for their work while a new retail head was found. Apple's previous retail leader, John Browett, left the company last year as part of Tim Cook's executive shuffle. Ahrendts will spend the rest of 2013 transitioning from her current role as CEO of Burberry. She is expected to start her work at Apple in the spring of 2014.
