Sony Hires Apple Vet For Retail
Sony Electronics said Wednesday that it has named a veteran of Apple's stores as the new chief of its Sony Style retail operation. Linda Turner, who spent the last seven years as senior regional director of stores for Apple, is now Sony's senior vice president for its retail stores.
Turner will oversee "strategic and operational direction" for the Sony Style chain, and will report to Sony Electronics president and COO Stan Glasgow.
Microsoft, which recently launched retail stores of its own, has also made a habit of hiring away talent from Apple.
