Two top Apple execs leave company

Two Apple executives have left the company recently, as e-commerce executive RJ Pittman has been hired by eBay to be the website’s newly created chief product officer of its eBay Marketplaces business. As his LinkedIn profile notes, Pittman was in charge of the design, product management, operations and growth of Apple’s e-commerce platform. He was with the company since March 2010. AllThingsD notes Pittman’s departure is unrelated to Apple’s recent hiring of Angela Ahrendts as head of retail.

Suzanne Lindbergh, whose LinkedIn profile refers to her position as worldwide director of buzz marketing at Apple, has reportedly left the company for Jawbone. Lindbergh was in charge of product placement of Apple products in movies and TV shows, a topic the company discussed little over the years, but disclosed during a recent trial was critical to the company’s extended, high-profile visibility in Hollywood productions. Jawbone hasn’t verified Lindbergh’s hiring. [via Apple Insider]
