New Apple CFO Luca Maestri's profile has appeared on the company's executive page just a couple days after officially being named CFO, succeeding longtime CFO Peter Oppenheimer.
Luca Maestri is Apple's senior vice president and Chief Financial Officer reporting to CEO Tim Cook. As CFO, Luca oversees the accounting, business support, financial planning and analysis, treasury, M&A, investor relations, internal audit and tax functions at Apple. Luca joined Apple in 2013 as vice president of Finance and corporate controller, and has worked closely with Apple's senior leadership since his arrival.
Apple announced the transition in early March. Oppenheimer will stay on through the summer, transitioning the balance of his responsibilities to Maestri until he officially retires in September.

Before joining Apple in 2013, Maestri was CFO at both Xerox and Nokia Siemens Networks. His 25 year career saw him with leadership roles at General Motors at multiple locations throughout the world, including South America, Europe and Asia Pacific.

Hey new guy, here is an idea (amongst the millions you will be receiving). Instead of more share buybacks or stock splits or whatever, how about spending more money on product development. There was some good stuff yesterday at WWDC, but we need to see more than one software release a year and one hardware release a year. When this was all about the USA and 2 year contracts, the slow release cycle made sense. And it is still important to add more quality checks to the process. But now that Apple sells all over the world and that even the US is moving away from contracts, it’s about time to release products and software throughout the year. Invest in hiring more engineers and developers and especially testers.

Other than that please continue with a fairly conservative fiscal approach that has kept the company cash rich, as this alone can help resist the temptation to sell your customer base down the road as others have (google are you listening?)
