Mouse giant Logitech has appointed the former head of Apple Computer?s marketing operation, Guerrino De Luca, as president and chief executive.
Replacing chairman Daniel Borel at the head of the Swiss company, De Luca said Logitech has potential to build on its strength in the user interface market - it is mainly known for its mice, joysticks and trackballs. "This is not a turnaround situation or a restructuring," he said. "The company is profitable."
De Luca was president of Apple?s Claris software subsidiary before joining Apple. Amid rumours of boardroom rows, he left last September, just after interim chief executive Steve Jobs took over. Logitech has had a number of UK general managers close to its crucial reseller channel in recent years, including Martin Pickering, Gerry Toms and Jim Barnes.
