Apple Losing Lead Engineer

Apple has announced that Bob Mansfield will be retiring after 13 years with Apple.  Mansfield has oversaw every major hardware release Apple has brought to the marketplace in the past decade including the iPod, iPhone, iPad and the MacBook Air.  This is a very impressive resume because when one looks at that list, it is easy to realize that those are the staples of what Apple is all about and Mansfield was in charge of those developments.  It is a big loss for Apple, but there is a very capable individual that will be transitioning into his role.  Mr. Dan Riccio, Apple’s Vice President of iPad hardware engineering will be taking over his role.  It sounds as if there is no better man for the job judging from his long history with Apple.  Riccio arrived at Apple in 1998 as the Vice President of product design and has been an integral part of the Apple team.

Apple CEO Tim Cook was quoted as saying, ”Bob has been an instrumental part of our executive team, leading the hardware engineering organization and overseeing the team that has delivered dozens of breakthrough products over the years.”
