Apple lost another high-profile employee

Apple lost another high-profile employee after the Cupertino, California-based company announced that Zane Rowe, head of North American sales, would be leaving the iPhone maker for unknown reasons, reports Reuters. Rowe’s departure follows the recent news that Apple’s longtime vice president of worldwide communications, Katie Cotton, would be resigning from the company in order to spend more time with her family.

“Katie has given her all to this company for over 18 years,” said Apple in a statement to the San Jose Mercury News. “She has wanted to spend time with her children for some time now. We are really going to miss her.”

Unlike Cotton, Rowe had only been with Apple for approximately two years. The former United Continental chief financial officer was hired by Apple in 2012. Although no reasons were given for Rowe’s departure, it should be noted that his exit follows the recent hiring of Angela Ahrendts, Apple’s vaunted new senior vice president of retail and online stores.
