Last week, we reported that Apple’s new retail chief, John Browett, had received $61M in stock rights. Browett received a total of 100,000 restricted stock units (RSUs) and at Apple’s current stock price, those RSUs are worth around $61 million. Then we reported that John Browett has been added to Apple’s leadership page.
Today, the new head of retail has sent an email introducing himself to Apple Retail employees in an email 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.
Browett has a degree in Natural Science from Cambridge University and an MBA from Wharton Business School.
