French newspaper Le Figaro is reporting that Pascal Cagni is stepping down from his position as Apple’s vice president of Europe. Cagni was hired by Steve Jobs in 2000 and has served as Apple’s European VP for 12 years. He was responsible for Apple’s explosive growth in the EMEA region, which saw revenue grow from US$1 billion to $19 billion per year under his leadership.
This resignation hasn’t been confirmed by Apple or Cagni and, as pointed out by The Next Web, Cagni’s LinkedIn account has not been updated. Given the newness of this change, this radio silence is expected.
