Apple Inc and Phil Schiller
Schiller has been with the company since his youthful career and now as he turns in his 69s, he is looking to give his family, friends and personal interests more time and focus. Schiller said:
“It has been a dream come true for me to work at Apple, on so many products I love, with all of these great friends – Steve, Tim, and so many more. I first started at Apple when I was 27, this year I turned 60 and it is time for some planned changes in my life. I’ll keep working here as long as they will have me, I bleed six colors, but I also want to make some time in the years ahead for my family, friends, and a few personal projects I care deeply about.”
In the recent past, Apple has made notable changes in its leadership board. Some of them include head of design Jony Ive, PR boss Steve Dowling and retail boss Angela Ahrendts. The reshuffle has coincided with a time when the company is fighting to keep its market dominance and monopoly with the U.S. policy makers. With a $1.86 trillion market capitalization at the time of publication, the company is among the unicorns delivering cutting edge tech products.
