Michael Gartenberg, a longtime industry analyst known for covering
digital media technologies and companies including Microsoft and
Apple, has left his post as an analyst at Gartner Inc. to take a
job with Apple.
Gartenberg didn’t immediately reply to a voicemail message left at
his office at Apple asking him to talk about his new role for the
Cupertino, California-based company. He is working on the
marketing team under Apple’s global marketing chief Phil Schiller,
according to sources.
Smart hire. Going to be weird seeing him on the other side of the line at Apple press events.
