Apple removes Jony Ive from leadership webpage as he officially departs the company
Apple has removed Jony Ive from its leadership webpage, marking his official departure from the company.
It was announced earlier in the year that Ive would be leaving Apple in late 2019 to form his own independent design practice, called LoveFrom, which will supposedly count Apple among its primary clients.
Ive, who has had deep involvement in the design of iPod, iPhone, iPad and MacBook hardware, said within a statement shared by Apple at the time, “After nearly 30 years and countless projects, I am most proud of the lasting work we have done to create a design team, process and culture at Apple that is without peer.”
First spotted by MacGeneration, the update sees the following SVPs alongside CEO Tim Cook: Katherine Adams, Eddy Cue, Craig Federighi, John Giannandrea, Sabih Khan, Luca Maestri, Deirdre O’Brien, Dan Riccio, Philip W. Schiller, Johny Srouji, and Jeff Williams.
Williams will oversee Apple’s design devision with design team leaders Evans Hankey, vice president of Industrial Design, and Alan Dye, vice president of Human Interface Design, reporting to him who will be working alongside newly appointed Senior Vice President of Operations Sabih Khan, a 24-year Apple veteran.
