United Continental CFO Becomes Apple’s New Vice President Of Sales

Apple's latest recruit is former United Continental CFO Zane Rowe.

United Continental Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Zane Rowe has departed his job at the airline to join the Apple team in Cupertino as its new Vice President of Sales. He has been United’s CFO since October 2010, and Apple is “thrilled” to be welcoming him to the camp.

Apple spokesman Steve Dowling told AllThingsD:

We are thrilled that Zane Rowe will be joining us as one of our vice presidents of sales. He built a great team at United and we think he is going to do a fantastic job at Apple.

Shifting from CFO to VP of Sales marks quite a career change for Rowe. But let’s face it, selling Apple products must be one of the easiest jobs in the world right now.

    IMO, this doesn’t bode well for Apple. Why did they shop for their Sales Exec from the shitiest airline on the planet?
