Apple Computer has taken a further knock as Heidi Roizen, vice president of developer relations, left the company yesterday. She said she wanted to "spend more time with her family" but the move will be a blow to Apple as she was a key figure in its future plans.
Roizen, a millionaire in her own right, was hired last year to explain Apple?s rather complex strategy to its large developer community.
Apple admitted her departure was a loss. Guerrina de Luca, an executive vice president at the company, said: ?In her tenure, Heidi greatly improved Apple?s developer relations activities - taking them from a nadir in 1996 to the much healthier relationship we have today.?
Roizen said that she still believed Apple?s management was taking positive action that will turn the company round. ?I?ll remain a member of the Apple community and will continue to cheer Apple on as both a shareholder and a customer.?
