Apple has hired Kevin Kenney as a Senior Composites Engineer, according to Kenney’s LinkedIn profile. The profile reveals that Kenney spent more than 13 years as the President & CEO of Kestrel Bicycles—a company that specializes in bikes with carbon-based frames—before leaving to start his own firm. Interestingly, it appears as though Kenney was doing work for Apple prior to his recent full-time hiring, as an Apple patent application from May 2009 for a “Reinforced device housing” made from a fiber-in-matrix material lists Kenney as the sole inventor. In addition to his background in working with fiber, Kenney’s profile also notes that he has experience in logistics, purchasing, and supply chain management. [via 9to5Mac]
