In January, Apple announced that it was appointing John Browett as the senior vice president of retail, following Ron Johnson’s decision to take a role as the CEO of J.C. Penny. Browett has officially started his role with Apple, 9to5 Mac said Wednesday. He was reportedly issued 100,000 shares of Apple’s stock — or about $60 million — but he’ll need to spend enough time with Apple for that stock to vest before he can cash out. Browett will have his work cut-out for him as Apple works to expand its retail presence around the globe, particularly in emerging markets. We imagine he’s also working on Apple’s Target and Walmart stores.
