Former Apple Senior Retail VP, now the CEO of JC Penney, is continuing his raid on Apple’s employees after hiring Apple’s Benjamin Fay for store design and development, the same role he held at his old company. Before Fay, Mike Fisher made the switch from Apple, now holding the ‘Senior Vice President of Visual Presentation’ role at JC Penney.
“Ben [Fay] is an incredibly creative professional with extraordinary leadership skills. Having worked with him over the last 12 years, I am delighted to see Ben step into this new role at jcp,” said Johnson. “His design influence has made the Apple stores highly regarded retail destinations around the world, and I am excited to have Ben place his own mark on jcp as we re-imagine the jcpenney store of the future.”
With these departures, we will have to see if new Apple Senior Retail VP John Browett decides to bring in some of his own staff as replacements, and at the moment, that seems pretty likely.
