It always warms my heart when someone leaves the dark side and joins the good. In this case Sally Cole, six-year veteran of Google, has joined Apple as a Communications Director. Same job as she had in Google, but now she is working for the fruit company down the street. With a B.A. in history from Yale and a a J.D./M.B.A. from Stanford, Sally is packing some pretty impressive credentials coming into Apple this week.
This newest addition could be part of Apple’s apparent scheme to hire people from Google with Google Maps experience in an attempt to enhance its own new maps service, a move that breaks the “no-poach” agreement instituted by late Apple CEO Steve Jobs. I wonder what Jobs would say about Cole’s position at Apple. What do you think? Leave a comment down below!
