Fijarse en los pequeños detalles tiene su recompensa: Apple Maps le da un repaso a Google en el transporte público de Madrid
Movements in the upper echelons of Apple’s Spanish subsidiary. The person who has been its Country Manager for more than three years, Óscar Rodríguez, has left the position and therefore the company has opened a selection process to be able to look for a replacement. We have been informed of this by sources at Kippel01, although in his LinkedIn profile he appears with the position of Country Manager.
Oscar came to Apple after spending about 4 years at LG and a decade at Motorola holding a similar position for part of it. There are no official communications on this subject, although the source suggests that ” would have been conditioned by the pressure of the senior positions in Europe “. This is not something we can confirm.
Apple Marketing Iberia, which is the official name of Apple’s Spanish subsidiary, has had positive figures in Spain this year. According to the country’s Commercial Registry, the business has grown by 33.69% reaching a turnover of 36.9 million euros. Net profit rose from 4.1 to 10.3 million euros in one year.
Apple Retail España, the store division, can also boast of having added 33 million euros in its 2016 fiscal year, reaching the figure of 337 million euros. This growth has also been reflected in the workforce: in one year it has grown from 1155 to 1240 Spanish workers . Another consequence: Apple’s market share in Spain has grown to 10.5%.
We have contacted Apple Spain to ask about the news and will update the article with their response.
