Cupertino: Apple’s senior vice president of global marketing, Phil Schiller, will step down from his position and will become an Apple researcher, continuing his legendary story of working at the company since 1987.
The company said in a statement late on Tuesday that in his new role, Schiller will report to Apple CEO Tim Cook and will continue to lead the App Store and Apple Events.
Greg (Joz) Joswiak, longtime leader of the product marketing organization, will join the executive team as senior vice president of global marketing.

“I started working at Apple when I was 27 and I am 60 years old this year. Now is the time for some planned changes in my life. As long as they have me, I will continue to work here. I will bleed six colors. , But I also hope to make time for my family, friends and some personal projects that I care about in the next few years.” Schiller said.

Cook said: “Joswiak’s years of leadership in the product marketing organization make him ideally suited for this new role and ensure a seamless transition when the team is engaged in such important and exciting work.”
