Apple, change at the top of the educational – Macitynet.it
Apple continues maneuvers in the educational sector. After launching an important "attack" in recent weeks with the release of eMac, it would now have a management restructuring planned.
According to the eWeek website, the Cupertino company would have arranged a simplification of the management structure by unifying the sales and marketing sector of the teaching department. According to Jobs, of which a memo is published that communicates the decision to the employees, this is a move to give greater cohesion and reactivity to market situations in the educational sector.
At the head of the new division a well-known face reappears, that of John Couch who was in charge of Apple's Personal Office Sales who oversaw Lisa's release; Cheryl Vedoe, who was at the head of Apple's marketing department, was placed at the helm of PowerSchool which manages the marketing of the software of the same name purchased by Apple almost two years ago and which in fact sanctions the creation of a new division, such as Jobs himself wrote, in the style of FileMaker and intended to promote the marketing of the package.
