Apple adds five new faces to its executive leadership press page
Apple has recently spruced up its executive leadership press page with the addition of five vice presidents from the company.
Here’s a complete list of the new additions:
Paul Deneve, vice president of special projects
Lisa Jackson, vice president of environmental initiatives
Joel Podlny, vice president and dean of Apple University
Johny Srouji, vice president of hardware technologies
Denise Young Smith, vice president of worldwide human resources
The page previously only listed senior vice presidents in the company. Interestingly, all five of the new additions report directly to CEO Tim Cook.
Earlier this week, Apple released a diversity report on its workforce. Globally, 70 percent of its employees are male and 30 percent are female.
At least in the United States, 55 percent of employees are white, 15 percent Asian, 11 percent Hispanic, and 7 percent black. Nine percent of employees didn’t declare a race while 2 percent said they belonged to two or more races. One percent selected “other.”
Cook, in an open letter, said the company will be working hard to improve the numbers.
Young Smith also narrated a recently released video about diversity at the company.
