Apple's SVP of Operations Sabih Khan (Source: Apple)
Sabih Khan, a 24-year Apple veteran, has been named to the company’s executive team as senior vice president of Operations. The announcement comes following the news that Jony Ive is leaving Apple to form an independent design company with Apple as its first client. The design team will be reporting to Chief Operating Officer Jeff Williams going forward and it seems that Khan will be taking over part of Williams' day-to-day operational responsibilities.
“I’ve been privileged to work with Sabih for more than 20 years, and you won’t find a more talented operations executive anywhere on the planet,” said Williams. “He is a world-class leader and collaborator, and I have no doubt that he will be the best leader of the Ops team in Apple’s history.”
In his new role, Khan will be in charge of Apple’s global supply chain, ensuring product quality and overseeing planning, procurement, manufacturing, logistics and product fulfillment functions, as well as Apple’s supplier responsibility programs that protect and educate workers at production facilities around the world.
