United Continental CFO Now an Apple VP of Sales

Zane Rowe, executive VP and Chief Financial Officer for United Continental, the holding company that owns United Airlines, has a new job — at Apple. Rowe, who has served as United’s CFO since October 2010, is leaving the airline for an high-ranking sales position in Cupertino, Apple confirmed.

“We are thrilled that Zane Rowe will be joining us as one of our vice presidents of sales,” Apple spokesman Steve Dowling told AllThingsD. “He built a great team at United and we think he is going to do a fantastic job at Apple.”

From CFO to a VP of Sales? Quite a career change — even if there are only a handful of VP of Sales jobs at Apple.

It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
