Apple has hired Stella Low as new vice president of worldwide corporate communications. Low, the former communications chief at Cisco, will take on the role that’s been open since late 2019.

She’ll report directly to Apple CEO Tim Cook.

Apple confirmed the hire, offering the following statement: “Stella brings her remarkable experience and leadership to Apple’s world-class communications teams. Apple has an important story to tell — from the transformative products and services we make, to the positive impacts we have on our communities and the world — and Stella is a great leader to help us write the next chapter.”

Low will succeed Steve Dowling, who served as Apple’s head of corporate public relations for 10 years before departing in September 2019. And her tenure will give a welcome break to Apple Fellow Phil Schiller, who has been overseeing the company’s public relations operation since Dowling left.

MacDailyNews Take: Congratulations to Stella Low (and Phil Schiller)!


  1. Didn’t even know former position was vacated and Phil Schiller was standing in. That tells something.
    Hope this new lady is a good corporate presenter and not just a sidekick to you know who.
