Interesting and fascinating tidbits about Apple’s COO, Jeff Williams. After leaving IBM, Williams went ahead and joined Apple in 1998:
Williams was charmed by the “contagious, palpable enthusiasm” at Apple, so he listened to his gut and came on board as head of Worldwide Procurement.
Since 2013, Williams has led development of the Apple Watch. Initially designed to encourage users to be more active, the product has had unexpected benefits, and even saved lives by alerting wearers to heart issues.
