Apple today announced that Bob Mansfield, senior vice president of Hardware Engineering, will retire. According to the company, Mansfield’s role will be transitioned over several months to Dan Riccio, current vice president of iPad Hardware Engineering. In his role, Mansfield has overseen Mac hardware engineering since 2005, iPhone and iPod hardware engineering since 2010, and iPad hardware engineering since the device’s inception.

“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,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We are very sad to have him leave and hope he enjoys every day of his retirement.”

“Dan has been one of Bob’s key lieutenants for a very long time and is very well respected within Apple and by the industry,” added Cook. “Our hardware engineering team is the best engineering team on earth and will not miss a beat during the transition.”
