Apple Retail Visionary Heads To J.C. Penney -- Excited?
If anyone knows how to run a retail shop, it's Apple. And that's largely because of Ron. Now, he'll be able to showcase those talents at a very different store. But the clothing industry isn't totally new for Ron; he came to Apple form Target, so he's been on this playing field before. Ron will be taking over starting November 1st, and he'll also join the Company's board of directors. He'll leave his VP post at Apple, and we suspect this movement will be interesting on two fronts. One: will the expansion of Apple retail stores continue on like they have been, or will we see the layout tweaked? And two: will J.C. Penney stores become the next greatest thing in retail?
