"Phil has helped me make Apple the business he is now, and his contribution is enormous and deep," said Tim Cook on today's occasion. During his time at Apple, Phil Schiller helped with both products and marketing, and last but not least, he prepared the most recent virtual WWDC conference in history. It has received recognition and positive reactions from experts, and many believe that WWDC 2020 has set a new standard for other online events of this type. "Working at Apple is a dream come true for me," Schiller said. "I first started here when I was 27, this year I was 60, and it's time to plan some changes in my life," he added, adding that he would like to make more time in the future for his family, friends and personal projects.

This is not the only innovation in this area. Apple also announced today that Greg "Joz" Joswiak, a longtime executive in the product marketing division, will join the company's executive team as senior vice president of global marketing. According to Cook, the years he spent in the leading position of product marketing predestined him to do so. "I am delighted that the entire executive team will benefit from this collaboration, ideas and energy," added Cook. The team, led by Joswiak, was responsible for, for example, product management and marketing, developer relations, market research, but also education and international marketing. Joswiak has more than twenty years of experience in leadership positions and has overseen, for example, the marketing of the original iPod or iPhone.
