There has been a lot of restructuring at Apple recently, with the latest coming in the form of North American Sales head Zane Rowe exiting.

On Thursday, an interview confirmed that Rowe is leaving and the head of Japanese and Korean sales will be taking over for him, a man by the name of Doug Beck. According to the spokesperson from Apple, Beck is responsible for the incredible growth that Apple has seen in emerging markets across the world, making him perfect for helping makeover the North American Stores.

There is already a lot in the works for the American retail stores, including the hiring of the former CEO of Burberry, but this means there will indeed be a lot more happening in the coming months. The head of retail will now be Angela Ahrendts, the first person acting as a dedicated head of retail since 2012.

Apple hasn’t commented on what their exact plans will be once everyone is in place and things are in motion, but with several new products being announced this year it is expected to be a very exciting time. The retail experience is important to Apple, so this might be just what it needs to stay on top and grow even more than they already have.
