According to a report from AllThingsD, Apple has hired United Continental’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Zane Rowe as its new Vice President (VP) of Sales. United Continental is the holding company for United Airlines, one of the world’s largest airlines.
Given the stature of Apple in the industry of technology, hiring by Apple for any executive position always makes news. The group of executives is in charge of running the world’s largest company (by market cap), and ensuring it stays on top…
Apple confirmed the hiring in a statement to the site:
“We are thrilled that Zane Rowe will be joining us as one of our vice presidents of sales,” Apple spokesman Steve Dowling told AllThingsD. “He built a great team at United and we think he is going to do a fantastic job at Apple.”
It remains to be seen how what Rowe would do to enhance Apple’s sales and do justice to his position.
