According to Bloomberg, Apple’s corporate treasurer for the past 35 years, Gary Wipfler, 62, has left the Cupertino-based company for retirement, according to sources familiar with the matter.
At the moment Apple has not officially confirmed the retirement of Gary Wipfler. According to his LinkedIn page, Wipfler joined Apple in August 1986, two years after the introduction of the first Macintosh and just a year after Steve Jobs left Apple.
The Bloomberg report says the executive decided leave your post discreetly in recent weeks. At Apple, he reported to CFO Luca Maestri and was responsible for overseeing the company’s cash balance and managing investments.
Gary Wipfler left his post in recent weeks, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the move has not been announced. Wipfler oversaw the iPhone maker’s cash balance, investments and return-on-equity programs, and was once a fixture in Apple’s quarterly earnings calls. The 62-year-old executive reported to CFO Luca Maestri until his retirement.
Gary Wipfler has worked almost every CEO Apple has ever had. From Steve Jobs to Tim Cook. The executive was heavily involved in the company’s racial justice efforts, and was behind the $ 3 billion acquisition of Beats in 2014.
Presumably Apple is looking for a new treasurer for the company. When I find it will announce the replacement in the position of Gary Wipfler.
