Apple seems to be acquiring some pretty huge talent these days. First Patrick Pruniaux left his gig as Tag Heuer’s VP of sales to take a post at Apple. Now It’s Musa Tariq, Nike‘s ex-global director of social media. He announced his position as the tech giant’s digital marketing director through twitter.
So what’s with the move? Could it be the fact that Angela Ahrendt‘s now heading up retail and online stores at Apple? Might possibly be, before Tariq was at Nike, he ran social media at Burberry during Ahrendt’s role as CEO.
Apple did not publicly comment on the move, but take a look at what Tariq had to say.
