Apple replaces head of China office

Apple replaced the head of its China office and said its Asia Pacific operations will all report directly to Vice President John Brandon from now on.

Apple Computer replaced the managing director of its China unit and made other changes aimed at increasing growth in the country, a spokesman said Friday.

The company named Simon Hong the new managing director of Apple China, and said the company's Asia Pacific operations will all report directly to Apple Vice President John Brandon from now on.

"Apple has made changes to its China organisation to further our growth in this very important region," Donald Cheung, a spokesman for Apple in Hong Kong, wrote in an e-mail in response to questions.

He declined to comment on local news reports that Apple had replaced several key managers in what would amount to a complete overhaul of its China office.

Cheung could not be reached for further explanation.

The final assembly of virtually all of Apple's portable products, including its PowerBooks, iBooks and iPods, is done in China, the company has said.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
