Last month, Andy Miller – Apple’s mobile ad boss – revealed his departure from Apple. Miller was reportedly tapped to become a general partner at Highland Capital, a Boston-based venture firm that helped launch Quattro Wireless.
Despite initial concerns that finding a replacement for Miller would be a laborious effort, it now appears that Apple has moved forward with naming a replacement.
According to published reports, Apple has promoted from within to fill Miller’s seat.
Eddy Cue, Apple’s vice president for Internet services, has been selected by new Apple CEO Tim Cook to serve as Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services.
“Please join me in congratulating Eddy on this significant and well-deserved promotion,” Cook said to his fellow Apple team-members via email. “I have worked with Eddy for many years and look forward to working with him even closer in the future.”
A 22-year veteran around the hallowed Cupertino, California offices of Apple, Cue is celebrated for having played an instrumental role in helping to create both Apple’s online store in 1998 and the iTunes Music Store in 2003.
