Bozoma Saint John, Apple Music and iTunes head of Global Consumer Marketing, is planning to leave the company, reports Axios.

Saint John, also known as "Boz," joined Apple when the company acquired Beats Music in 2014. She came into the public spotlight at the 2016 Worldwide Developers Conference, where she demonstrated new Apple Music features on stage.

Since then, Saint John has spoken at Fortune's Most Powerful Women Summit, starred in an Apple Music ad alongside Eddy Cue, Jimmy Iovine, and James Corden, and represented Apple Music in interviews along with Larry Jackson and Zane Lowe.

It is not clear where Saint John, who formerly worked at Pepsi, will be heading after she leaves Apple. Her reason for leaving is also unclear, with Apple declining to comment on the news.

I cautiously enquire why you think this?

From what I'd seen and read, she was an enthusiastic, intelligent person who increased the profile of black women in industry.
Because she was annoying. And it has nothing to do with her race, as you so predictably tried to bring up as a relevant point in your comment.

I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not because I only seen her at that one keynote so I never formed an opinion of her.
All I can say is that when she was on stage, I had to cringe when she tried getting everyone to clap or dance along to Rappers Delight... :eek:

I agree. She was horrible. She was another lousy exec that Apple got from buying Beats. Now let's hope Jimmy Iovine is next to leave.

All I can say though is that when she was on stage, I had to cringe when she tried getting everyone to clap or dance along to some song she played... :eek:
It was as cringeworthy as Cue's dancing. The only Apple exec who doesn't embarrass himself/herself is Hair Force One.
