John Browett Joins Apple As Senior Vice President of Retail, Has Big Shoes To Fill

Apple has announced that John Browett will join the company as senior vice president of Retail, reporting to Apple CEO Tim Cook. Browett comes to Apple from European technology retailer Dixons Retail, where he has been CEO since 2007. Beginning in April, he will be responsible for Apple’s retail strategy and the continued expansion of Apple retail stores around the world. Browett has big shoes to fill as his predecessor Rob Johnson took Apple retail stores from an idea nobody thought would work to one of most profitable retail outlets per square foot in the world.

Prior to joining Dixons Retail, Browett held a series of executive positions at Tesco plc including CEO of Tesco.com. Earlier in his career he advised retail and consumer goods clients at Boston Consulting Group. He holds a degree in Natural Sciences from Cambridge University and an MBA from Wharton Business School.
