Apple vice president of Europe Pascal Cagni has left the company, according to a report.
French newspaper Le Figaro is reporting today, citing an unnamed source, that Cagni resigned from Apple yesterday (heres an English translation). The publication didn't say where he might have gone. Apple has not confirmed that Cagni has left the company, and his LinkedIn profile still shows him as employed by the iPhone maker.
Cagni joined Apple back in April 2000 to head up the company's European operations. According to reports at the time, he was hand-picked by Steve Jobs for the post. Prior to his time at Apple, Cagni served as vice president of consumer products for NEC/Packard Bell Europe.
Cagni's reported departure comes less than a year afterto take over as president and CEO of J.C. Penney.
