Apple’s vice president of worldwide corporate communications Katie Cotton is retiring, Re/Code reports. The PR maven has worked at Apple for almost two decades, and she’s long been one of the most powerful, important figures at the image-conscious company.
“Katie has given her all to this company for over 18 years,” Apple spokesman Steve Dowling said in a statement. “She has wanted to spend time with her children for some time now.
We are really going to miss her.”
Cotton told Re/Code the decision was a difficult one. “This is hard for me,” she said.
