Recently, Apple has been losing some important executives, and now Doug Beck is about to leave the business. According to a Bloomberg report, the top sales executive is leaving Apple to take a position with the US Defense Department.
The US Defense Department itself verified the information and commended Beck for his nearly 15 years of service to Apple. Since 2009, the executive has worked for Apple and personally answered to CEO Tim Cook. Beck, who had previously led the company’s operations in Asia and the Americas, was in charge of co-leading Apple’s worldwide business at the time.
Apple issued a statement in which it expressed its “support for Doug’s public service and best wishes for him. However, his departure obviously marks yet another significant loss for the business, which recently lost executives in a number of divisions including industrial design, hardware and software engineering, and sales.
Michael Abbott, another senior Apple executive who oversaw iCloud and other online offerings from the company like FaceTime and iMessage, has revealed he will be leaving the company later this month. Peter Stern, Apple’s vice president of services, previously disclosed his intention to quit the organisation.
