Apple recently hired on John Browlett, from British electronics retailer Dixons, as their new Senior Vice President of Retail. Browlett officially started on April 20th, and he recently sent out an email to Apple Store employees introducing himself…
The introductory email was obtained by IFO Apple Store:
At last I’ve officially started at Apple, and it’s great to be here. I’ve had the chance to meet many of you at stores in the U.S. and across Europe, and one of my top priorities for the coming months is to meet many more people on our team around the world.
It’s incredibly impressive to be on the inside of Apple Retail. Many of my friends, relatives, and former colleagues have written to tell me how lucky I am to be working with such a great group of people, and I couldn’t agree more. While our stores are fantastic and our products are amazing, it really is our people who make the difference in creating the best retail experience.
There will be much more to share in the weeks ahead, and I’m looking forward to meeting everyone over time.
I am thrilled to work with all of you as we build the future of Apple Retail together.
He seems like a nice guy to me. Browett replaced Ron Johnson who left the company to help expand JC Penny’s retail stores. Browett was also awarded more than $60 million worth of restricted stock as an incentive for the next five years on board with Apple.
That’s a lot of incentive…
