A while back we reported that former Burberry CEO Angela Ahrendts would join Apple as Senior Vice President of Retail and Online Stores, now she has officially joined Apple. She was very recently listed on the company’s executive page.

Angela is responsible for the operation and expansion of Apple retail and online stores, which have redefined the shopping experience for hundreds of millions of customers around the world. Apple retail stores set the standard for customer service with innovative features like the Genius Bar, personal setup and one-to-one personal training to help customers get the most out of their Apple products.

Angela holds a Marketing and Merchandising degree from Ball State University in Indiana, where she was awarded an honorary doctorate in 2010. She is also a member of the UK’s Prime Minister’s Business Advisory Council and was named honorary dame commander of the British Empire in April 2014.

As mentioned earlier before joining Apple, Ahrendts was the CEO of Burberry, a position she held dating back to 2006. She is well known for turning Burberry around, bringing it out of a decline by almost tripling the revenues.

It will be interesting to see how she can help Apple improve their online and retail stores.
