The exec’s name is Enrique Atienza and he’ll be in charge of retail operations on the west coast. However, Apple still doesn’t have a senior vice president in charge of all retail. That position has been left open since Apple let go John Browett last fall after less than a year on the job.

Gurman reports that Apple is still on the hunt for a new retail boss, and is looking to hire someone from outside the U.S.
