Ex-Motorola man joins Apple


Ex-Motorola European marketing chief, Simon Thompson, is to join Apple.

Thompson will join the iPhone manufacturer as online store director for Europe, Middle East and Africa. He will be based in London and replaces Neil Stevens, who recently joined Skype.

He joined Motorola in 2006 as pan European marketing director, at a time when the manufacturer spent £30m a year on advertising in Europe and was the second-biggest handset manufacturer in the world.

Two years ago, Thompson joined online discount holiday company lastminute.com from Motorola. He will leave in September.
