Bob Kupbens isn’t sticking around to get an early glimpse at the iPhone 7. According to a report citing multiple sources, the former online retail chief, who joined Apple in 2014, has left the company to take up a new position elsewhere.
The recent departure of John Browett has left Apple searching for a new senior executive to lead its retail division. Internally, Apple has had a couple of execs who could fit the bill. One of the top contenders, retail VP Jerry McDougal, has now left Apple for personal reasons.
McDougal’s replacement will be VP of Finance Jim Bean, according to an official statement provided by Apple.
