Ex-Apple retail chief Browett: Apple’s great, I didn’t fit

Former Apple retail chief John Browett said he “just didn’t fit” the company in a recent interview at the Retail Week Live conference. Browett left Apple in late October after a brief stint with the company. “Apple is a truly fantastic business. The people are great, they’ve got great products, it’s got a great culture and I loved working there, it’s a fantastic business. The issue there was that I just didn’t fit within the way they run the business … you are rejected from the organization for fit rather than competency,” he said. However, Browett also noted what he learned during his time at Apple was “probably the best thing that’s ever happened to me, certainly from a business perspective,” suggesting that he learned humility and became a “much kinder person” as a result. Browett is now chief executive of London-based retailer Monsoon Accessorize. [via The Independent]
