Cotton served as gatekeeper to company co-founder Steve Jobs and current CEO Tim Cook, and guided the media narrative around pretty much everything from the iMac to the iPad. She’s long been among the company’s most powerful executives and played a key role in shaping the mystique and exclusivity surrounding the Apple brand. 

“Katie has given her all to this company for over 18 years,” Apple spokesman Steve Dowling said in a statement. “She has wanted to spend time with her children for some time now. We are really going to miss her.”

Cotton told Re/code that her decision to leave Apple was among the most difficult of her career. “This is hard for me,” she said. “Apple is a part of my heart.”

    “She has wanted to spend time with her children for some time now.”
    Well, that sounds really great! In other words, for 18 years she didn’t have enough time to spends with her kids, but now that they are probably headed out for college and then away into the world, NOW she wants spend time with them. Typical american family model…

    Also…that’s one of the most ridiculous facial muscle exercise I’ve ever seen.

      Yeah, that does not seem to be a natural facial exercise for her, does it?
