Apple retail VP to leave

BY Katherine Boccaccio

New York — Jerry McDougal, retail VP for Apple Inc., will be leaving the company, according to a Wednesday report by Bloomberg.

He will be replaced by Jim Bean, a VP in Apple’s finance division.

Company spokesman Steve Dowling told Bloomberg that Bean will be an apt replacement for McDougal, who served under former CEO Ron Johnson for many years.

“Retail has an incredibly strong network of leaders at the store and regional level,” Dowling said. “Jim has been at Apple for 15 years and is a great leader who understands our culture and focus on customer service.”

Dowling said that Apple CEO Tim Cook will conduct a search for a new SVP over retail operations for the company.

Mastercard: Canada trailed U.S. in December sales growth

BY Katherine Boccaccio

New York — A report released Wednesday by MasterCard revealed that Canadian retail sales, which grew just 1.6% in December, trailed the U.S., which also posted less than stellar results for the month.

Sales in the U.S. advanced 2.4% in December.

Canada’s results were particularly disappointing, considering the country’s December sales grew 4.3% in December 2011, according to MasterCard’s SpendingPulse report.
