Schiller will continue to run the App Store, Apple events, and will report solely to Tim Cook. He explained the change of his position by the desire to spend more time with family and friends.
“I will continue my work here as long as I need it. There is a lot of work, but I would also like to have time for my family and friends, as well as personal projects. “Schiller said in a statement to Apple.
Greg Josviak, who will take over as Schiller, has worked at Apple in leadership positions in Apple product marketing for over 20 years. He was responsible for advertising campaigns for iPods, iPhones and other Apple devices.
