- Apple has hired an executive from the retail world — Marcela Aguila —as its new director of global communications.
- Aguila has spent the past three years with Gap remaking the retail clothing brand as senior global director-marketing communications.
- Her hire is prior to the launch of the new wearable mobile device, the Apple Watch.
