Cynthia Hogan

Apple’s vice president of public policy and government affairs, Cynthia Hogan, resigned from his position at the company after being appointed to a committee charged with electing the vice president of the candidate for the presidency of the United States, Joe Biden.

The Cupertino giant confirmed Hogan’s departure in a statement to the Axios released yesterday (4/13), saying that the executive will leave the company definitively in June.

Last week, Hogan joined the Biden campaign vice presidential committee, which is also comprised of Senator Chris Dodd, Congresswoman Lisa Blunt (D-DE) and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.

Hogan had already worked with Biden in 1993 ‚Äď at the time, as an aide to the then senator. She served in various positions before working at Biden‚Äôs office (who was vice president of Barack Obama) in 2009.

Apple hired Hogan in 2016 to head the company’s Washington office, where she served as a lobbyist under Apple’s vice president of environmental, political and social initiatives, Lisa Jackson.

Apple has not yet announced who will replace Hogan ‚Äď or even whether that exchange will take place before the official leaves.
