    One week ago, we noted that former Dixons Retail CEO had officially started his job as senior vice president of retail at Apple. Browett's start date of April 20 was revealed by securities filling revealing that he had received stock rights currently worth $60 million as of that date.

    At the time, we pointed out that Browett had not been added to Apple's leadership page on its website, but that issue has now been addressed and Browett has received his own dedicated page with the standard headshot photo and a brief biography.
    Given that Apple lists its executives in alphabetical order with the exception of CEO Tim Cook, Browett holds a prominent position on the main page directly next to Cook. With Browett's arrival, the senior executive leadership team now includes ten members, all of whom with the exception of Browtt and general counsel Bruce Sewell have been with the company for at least ten years.

    It appeared to me just now, we have an iOS software svp, but no OS X software one. I remember Bertrand Serlet used to be responsible for OS X. Then Craig Federighi replaced him, but nonetheless he's not present there.

    So how is it with OS X? Who responsible for that?

    I was thinking the same thing. He looks like a completely different person.

    60 mil can get you a good barber apparently.

    If you've used lion you shouldn't be asking why there's a big void to who is responsible for it...

    Federighi remains a VP and so is not a member of the senior executive team. He did, however, report directly to Steve Jobs once he took over for Serlet and presumably now reports to Tim Cook.

    I'm not sure why he hasn't been elevated to the SVP level.

    I wish they'd update Ive's photo. It's not like he doesn't know how to smile.

    Wow, the Apple make-over did wonders for him. @_@

    Looking forward to seeing what he does at Apple, it's certainly different to what he's been doing in the past.
