Apple PR chief Katie Cotton retiring

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. “Apple is a part of my heart and soul.”
