Apple’s Tim Cook Adds Engineering VPs to Executive Management Team; Mansfield to Stay

Some noteworthy management news from Apple today. The company said this afternoon that Craig Federighi, its vice president of Mac Software Engineering, and Dan Riccio, its vice president of Hardware Engineering, have joined Apple’s executive management team, reporting directly to CEO Tim Cook. And in an odd, and as of yet unexplained turn of events, it said that SVP Bob Mansfield, who announced his retirement back in June, is sticking around to oversee the development of “future products.” Hopefully, one of them will be a new Mac Pro. Mansfield too, will report directly to Cook.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
