Apple Music’s global head of consumer marketing, Bozoma Saint John, has resigned, sources tell Billboard, one of the highest-profile executives to leave Apple since it launched its streaming service two years ago.
The reason for her planned departure wasn’t immediately clear; Saint John didn’t respond to a request for comment, and Apple declined to comment. News that Saint John was planning to leave the company was first reported by Axios.
While insiders say they don’t expect Saint John’s departure to significantly hurt Apple Music on an operational level, her exit could be a loss for Apple’s image. Saint John, 40, is well-liked among her colleagues and one of the few high-ranking black female executives at the company. The details of her exit haven’t been worked out, a source tells Billboard.
