Mark Papermaster’s departure, Cultural Incompatibility? [Update]
The antenna massacre for Apple led to the resignation of the executive in charge. Apparently, Mark Papermaster quit Apple for all the stumbles related to the iPhone antenna issue.
But sources have revealed another story, “His departure was highly because of cultural incompatibility, the CEO had lost confidence on him and when he was not invited for decision making processes sometimes”; said an employee close to Papermaster.
But this update has also been cited by Wall Street Journal the other way round stating Papermaster’s reason for resignation to be solely professional and can be attributed to office politics. However, he joined the company when the testing for iPhone was in process. His decision was his personal obligations, as stated by Apple.
Hope Apple comes up with the best, be it the Apple of the “i” products or the staffs.
