Report: Top Apple marketing exec to depart
Longtime Apple marketing VP Allison Johnson is said to be leaving the company to start a new marketing venture of her own.
Allison Johnson, Apple's vice president of worldwide marketing, is said to be leaving her post at the company to co-found a new marketing firm.
Johnson's new gig is said to be co-founding a new marketing firm with former Facebook PR executive Brandee Barker.
This would mark Johnson's second departure from Apple, where she had worked previously. During the 1990s, Johnson held the position of director of media relations both at IBM then later Netscape Communications.
Prior to joining Apple for the second time, Johnson had spent six years at HP as the senior vice president of marketing, where she was said to be one of then-CEO Carly Fiorina's closest advisers.
