Being one of the largest companies in the world, with more than 84 thousand employees, we often see some important executives arriving and others leaving Cupertino. That’s what happened these past few weeks.
Imagine a person who worked as a vice president of engineering for Twitter, was a team leader on Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform and senior vice president of applications and services at Palm, helping to create webOS. Quite a resume, right? Because this whole experience seems to have seduced Apple, which hired Michael Abbott to play an unspecified role, as reported by the MacGeneration (Google translator).
Abbott worked as an investor in Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, betting on numerous companies that were starting their businesses, for example, Snapchat. In a post on his personal blog, however, he explained that he would step away from this investor job «in the next two months» in order to focus on his passion (engineering) again.
