Apple Retail VP Jerry McDougal Resigns
Jerry McDougal, Apple’s vice president of Retail and a potential candidate for the company’s now-vacant SVP of Retail position, has left the company, Apple confirmed to AllThingsD.
McDougal, who resigned earlier this month, is to be replaced by Jim Bean, formerly Apple VP of Finance. While it’s not clear if this is an exec-for-exec swap, Bean has exactly the sort of operational acumen that would lend itself to the position McDougal’s departure leaves open. Bean will retain his VP title, though “of Finance” may change to “of Retail.”
