Apple Has a New COO (and Phil Schiller will lead the App Store).

Apple on Thursday named a new chief operating officer, Jeff Williams, a longtime employee who has since 2010 managed the company’s supply chain, service, and support.Johny Srouji is joining Apple’s executive team as senior vice president for Hardware Technologies and Phil Schiller, senior vice president of worldwide marketing, will also take on leadership of the App Store across all of Apple’s platforms, the company said in a statement. “Jeff is hands-down the best operations executive I’ve ever worked with, and Johny’s team delivers world-class silicon designs which enable new innovations in our products year after year,” Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook said in the statement. Williams has effectively been Apple’s COO for some time, but CEO Tim Cook has left the title unclaimed since he vacated it to take the reins from an ailing Steve Jobs in 2011.

Apple adds: Phil now leads nearly all developer-related functions at Apple, in addition to his other marketing responsibilities including Worldwide Product Marketing, international marketing, education and business marketing. More than 11 million developers around the world create apps for Apple’s four software platforms — iOS, OS X®, watchOS™ and tvOS™ — as well as compatible hardware and other accessories, and customers have downloaded more than 100 billion apps across those platforms. Myhren joins from Grey Group, where he has served as chief creative officer and president of Grey New York, and succeeds Hiroki Asai, who earlier announced plans to retire after 18 years at Apple. Srouji, who joined Apple in 2008, was previously in charge of development of Apple’s systems-on-a-chip, the hardware that powers mobile devices like the iPhone and iPad.
