Apple just announced that it has hired Dixons Retail CEO John Browett to be its Senior Vice President of Retail Operations.Browett takes the place of Ron Johnson, who left Apple in November 2011 to become CEO of JC Penney. Johnson is largely credited for helping flesh out Apple’s revolutionary retail strategy that, as of yet, nobody has been able to replicate.
Can Browett fill boots that big? He has been quite successful as the CEO of Dixons Retail, which operates Curry’s and PCWorld, two of the biggest consumer electronics chains outside the United States.
But do his stores look any good?
